This award, sponsored by Ministry for Primary Industries, will be presented to organisations that have formed partnerships to generate positive impacts on people’s lives – on health, nutrition, housing, employment, community and more.
The best organisations look far beyond their own walls. They create and foster partnerships that generate positive impacts on people’s lives – on health, nutrition, housing, employment, community and more. Partnerships might be between businesses, social enterprises, community organisations, not for profits or local/national government.
This award will be presented to organisations that have formed partnerships for social good. The partnership draws on the unique advantages of all parties involved and makes people demonstrably better off.

- All Heart NZ Charitable Trust
- Auckland Council, TROW Group and Green Way Demolition
- BNZ and The Salvation Army
- Business Working to End Family Violence (ANZ, Countdown, Ernst & Young, Fonterra, NZ Human Rights Commission, Ricoh, Vodafone, The Warehouse)
- Dung Beetle Innovations

We asked the Ministry for Primary Industries what inspired them to sponsor the NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards:
‘In 2019, we know transformational change is needed in the primary sector, and we know that MPI cannot do it alone.
“Our partnerships with primary industry and non-primary industry leaders have been critical to helping us battle some of Aotearoa’s biggest challenges – how we farm and fish sustainably, grow our forests faster, ensure our food is safe for consumers, and keep our country free from pests and diseases.
“We chose to support the ‘Partnering for Good’ Award, because we recognise that working together can create impact far beyond what can be accomplished alone. Congratulations to all the finalists for uniting with others to make a difference to the lives of New Zealanders.”
