Hardwired for Social Good Award

This award, sponsored by Alsco, will be presented to an organisation that is consistently improving people’s lives through its day to day business practices.

Good businesses make sure people involved in or affected by their activities are better off than they would be otherwise.  This may be through the businesses’ products or services, in-house wellbeing policies, supply chains, procurement, location, investment or through their business models. The people affected could include employees, local communities and the wider population.

This award will be presented to an organisation that is deliberately and consistently improving people’s lives through its day to day business practices. Social good is integrated throughout the whole organisation.

The finalists for the Hardwired for Social Good Award are:

  • All Heart NZ Charitable Trust
  • ecostore
  • Koha Kai
  • Little Yellow Bird
  • Natural Paint Co
  • Thankyou Payroll

We asked Alsco what inspired them to support the NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards:

“At Alsco we believe the success of any company can only be absolute if there is a genuine intent to assist and lend a helping hand to others less fortunate.

After all, we are dependent on all the communities we operate in for success, and the families that live in those communities, and like family we must care and support those in difficult circumstances.

All the finalists will know that it is a great feeling to be doing just a little bit and playing your part in forging a better future. And the finalists will also understand that is a far more enriching experience than simply running a successful business. In fact, success and caring must go hand in hand.

Alsco applauds all the finalists for making a difference and contributing so positively to our society.”
