Entries are now open for The Circle Awards AUS & NZ 2022, the preeminent awards celebrating and uniting businesses, organisations, projects and people making a positive environmental and social impact in Australia and New Zealand.
Entrants across 14 categories ranging from architecture, transport and local government through to fashion, food and wellbeing, will be judged by a panel of industry leaders, with four special accolade categories including; Judges Choice, People’s Choice, the One to Watch and Shape Shifter.
Nick Hoskin, Founder TMRRW™ and The Circle Awards said the inaugural awards last year proved there are plenty of businesses in this region leading in positive impact for people and the planet whilst also being commercially successful.
“This is however a relatively new market so we must continue spotlighting those getting it right, and inspiring more people to join the movement.
“These are more than just awards, one of our major goals is to build a passionate community for environmental and social impact, and foster a culture of collaboration and collective action. By doing this we inspire businesses and individuals to do and be better, for our communities and the environment.”
A recent study titled ‘Who Do You Believe?’ has revealed that 81 per cent of Australian consumers believe businesses have a responsibility to help combat the world’s environmental and social issues. By celebrating innovative products and services, The Circle Awards AUS & NZ raise awareness of the sustainable, eco-conscious options available to consumers and businesses alike.
Hoskins said they are interested in innovative efforts and ideas, with their unique judging criteria and diverse range of categories designed to ensure a variety of organisations are recognised.
“We can’t wait to see the range of entrants in 2022 and encourage any and all businesses working to achieve better environmental and social outcomes to enter.”
The Circle Awards AUS & NZ submissions close on 20 September 2022.
The Circle Awards AUS & NZ winners will be announced at a live event on 18 October 2022 as part of the Purpose 2022 conference.
