Airbnb Community Impact Award.

Community involves using the power of business to address pressing social problems in an innovative way that might create real change through your product or service, supply chain, employees or community initiatives.

The Community Impact Award will be presented to an organisation with a programme, project, campaign, or its overall business is making a tangible difference in its sector.

We asked Airbnb what inspired them to sponsor the NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards.

Airbnb is proud to sponsor the 2016 SBN awards to recognise and support sustainability initiatives that have a great community impact and make a difference locally.

Airbnb allows anyone to belong anywhere. Our platform helps strangers see a city as a local does and lets hosts become ambassadors for the communities they love. Unique Airbnb listings range from tree houses, yurts, caves, eco-cabins and off-grid homes, drawing inspiration from the natural environment.

We are pleased to work with the NZ business community to support inspiring local projects.
