What a great way to start the week! Cityhop has got an email from the Sustainable 60 awards advising we are a finalist in the Marketplace and Small Business category.
Run by Fairfax Media and PwC the awards showcase sustainable business practice in NZ.
Says Unlimited Editor, Mark Revington, This is the third year for the awards, this year’s finalists know that sustainability isn’t an add-on or achieved by an annual tree-planting day. This is about sustainability across the board not an energy audit.”
Says Victoria Carter, Cityhop co-founder, “We are so pleased. We were established on the premis of making it easier for others to be more sustainable. Virtually everything we do considers what is the best way of doing this. Only last week we did a video conference on ‘what is car share’ to a dozen Wellington larger employers and government departments instead of getting on a plane and presenting!”
