Congratulations to the winners of the inaugural Finder Green Awards!

With initiatives to reduce emissions, provide sustainable finance options and move towards zero-waste, the Finder Green Awards celebrate the businesses doing their bit to protect our planet.

Even during this uncertain time, it is important to pause and celebrate these Australian success stories. We want to help consumers understand how their decisions impact the environment so we'll be integrating this information into our platform so that millions of Aussies can compare sustainable options.

How did we pick the winners?

Winners were selected based on broad environmental metrics including greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy usage and waste avoiding landfill, while criteria for the people-based categories was based on key achievements and impact. Details on each category can be found in the 2020 Finder Green Awards entry criteria document (PDF).
