We asked NZI what inspired them to sponsor the Awards. 

Garry Taylor is Executive General Manager of NZI. He says:

“NZI has been involved with the SBN for 12 years now and it’s become evident that a growing number of New Zealand businesses are looking at the role they can play in improving their environmental or social performance.

“As an insurer, we see first-hand the devastating impact that a changing climate can have on our customers and our communities. NZI and its parent group IAG continue to champion the awareness of the insurance implications of climate change for New Zealand.

“However, tackling climate change will take a collective effort, that’s why we continue to support the SBN and the incredible work it does to inspire this change.

“We look forward to seeing more of the innovation and passion that goes towards making this change in this year’s applications.”
