We would again like to thank all the businesses and schools that participated in the Selwyn Responsible Business Awards 2022 along with our supporters that made it possible. There was a tremendous response this year and we hope that the many people who were able to attend the Awards Evening enjoyed the occasion. We certainly enjoyed the celebratory atmosphere and the citations delivered by our Assessors to each certificate recipient showed that there are great efforts being made to conduct business activity with the Environment and Community in mind. We heard about many excellent initiatives. All are to be congratulated. The area and overall winners are listed below along with all the organisations that took part this year.
In the forthcoming year we do not run the Awards but we operate a Responsible Business Network which we hope people will join. This is not intended to be a time consuming activity but simply a way of businesses, as they have time, sharing and receiving information largely on media and discussing activities and initiatives. There will be a few get-together’s with guest speakers for those interested.
Thanks to Our Speakers
It was a pleasure to hear from Tony from Loxley Innovation Ltd. The advancement of electric tractor technology is a fascinating topic and we certainly hope Tony and Duncan find success with their business.
Anyone wishing to get in contact with Loxley to further support or discuss their endeavors can find more about them here. Spread the word!
It was also a pleasure to hear from John Veix who has been busy planning the Selwyn Sustainability Expo which takes place in Rolleston in January 21st and 22nd 2023.John also supplied a gift of native plants to the award attendees, which was very much appreciated.
Thanks to Our Sponsors
Selwyn District Council, the Rata Foundation and Lincoln University are greatly appreciated as long term supporters. Many thanks also to Councillor Nicole Reid who presented the certificates and trophies.
This project also relied on specific supporters; The Waste Management Department of Selwyn District Council separately support the work of our Assessors and survey development which enables us to visit widely scattered businesses and make for a thorough and thoroughly enjoyable process; Lincoln New World enabled us to provide a great spread of food and some of the refreshments and Rossendale Winery supplied the wine; all of this support is at an extremely generous level.
And finally… Congratulations to our winners!
