Australia’s greenest businesses called on to enter the Finder Green Awards
Submissions have now opened for the Finder Green Awards 2022 with entries closing at 5pm Friday 8 April 2022.
Entries are now open for the Finder Green Awards 2022, which celebrate businesses, brands and people that are leading the way when it comes to environmental sustainability.
Now in its third year, the Finder Green Awards help consumers make greener decisions every day by uncovering sustainable options across a range of industries that Finder compares, including energy, insurance, banking, travel, shopping, superannuation and telecommunications.
There are 26 categories open for entry, which are judged on environmental metrics such as greenhouse gas emissions, renewable energy usage and waste avoiding landfill as well as metrics specific to each category. Entering the awards is completely free and companies are encouraged to enter as many categories as relevant.
Amy Bradney-George, editor of Finder's sustainability vertical Finder Green, said the awards highlight the businesses and leaders that recognise their role in reducing their impact on the planet.
"We know that Australians are concerned about their carbon footprint, but the greener option isn't always as clear as a reusable shopping bag. This is especially true when it comes to complex areas like banking or insurance."
Finder research has shown 66% of Aussies are worried about their carbon footprint and 41% consider a company's environmental and social efforts very or extremely important when purchasing products or services.
"The Finder Green Awards offer clarity to customers and give brands the opportunity to prove their commitment to building a more sustainable future.
"We want to empower more purpose-driven consumers to vote with their wallets, so this year we've added 5 new categories to give Aussies more options to choose green."
New categories in 2022 include Green Beauty Brand of the Year, Green Cleaning Brand of the Year and Green Health Insurer of the Year.
Chris Ellis, CEO of Finder Australia, said the Finder Green Awards are an integral part of our commitment to building a more sustainable future and, as such, are a key part of Finder's growing awards program.
"Finder's mission is about helping people make better decisions every day and we recognise the important role our business can play in making sustainability a part of those decisions.
"I'm personally very excited to see the green initiatives, innovations and sustainability champions that emerge in this year's Finder Green Awards."
Submissions are open as of today and entries will be accepted until 5pm Friday 8 April 2022, with winners to be revealed at a ceremony in June 2022.
Amy Bradney-George said that as a judge in last year's awards, it's clear that businesses are setting that bar high for sustainability.
"Last year's entrants were incredibly impressive and we anticipate this year to be no different," Bradney-George said.
"We encourage all brands that are prioritising sustainability in their industries to throw their hat in the ring and share their impact."
