We asked Eco Pro what inspired them to sponsor the NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards.
Becoming the first and only cleaning company in NZ to achieve Environmental Choice NZ certification on our services back in 2009 was a game changer for us. Since then we have won several awards in the sustainability space so it was a natural progression for us to become involved at a sponsorship level. We are enthusiastic about supporting other businesses in their journey as it also enhances our own journey. Having been through a similar process we understand what an incredible opportunity entering an awards process offers – it not only provides a chance to step back and take stock of just how much you have achieved but gives you a chance to see clearly the potential to further that growth.
