A new set of business awards have been announced, to celebrate the Baltic front-runners in sustainability innovation and highlight the increasing role of innovation in sustainability.
The Helve cmpany is launching the Baltic Sustainability Awards, sponsored by supermarket chain Rimi. Applications for the awards are already open, and the winners from all Baltic states will be announced during the awards ceremony at the Future Form conference on December 9.
Enterprises, organizations, startups, and individuals are welcome to apply for the awards in three categories – Impact, Innovation, and Changemaker.
The organizers’ goal is to highlight the potential of already existing GreenTech (green technology) solutions and encourage peer-to-peer learning about sustainability achievements among enterprises, industries, and professionals.
“Innovation is a crucial element in the current business world where sustainability has become one of the main priorities. Companies that invest in sustainability and are perceived by society as sustainable today will likely become industry leaders tomorrow. With Rimi Baltic Sustainability Awards, we hope to inspire and motivate companies and organizations to continue their work towards sustainability goals and allow their achievements to serve as an example for others,” said Helve Co-founder and General Partner Marija Rucevska of the initiative.
Organizers told LSM the exact nature of the award prizes remained to be confirmed.
More information on the categories, awards procedure, and application process is available at www.balticsustainabilityawards.eu .
The Baltic Sustainability Awards ceremony will be a closing event of the Future Forum conference, taking place onsite in Riga (if the epidemiological situation allows) and online.
