Westpac Northland Business Excellence Awards

 Northland Regional Council sponsors the Environmental Excellence Award as part of the Westpac Northland Business Excellence Awards.

This award recognises innovative businesses who demonstrate a strong commitment to managing, protecting and enhancing Northland’s environment. The region’s natural resources sustain our lives.

Businesses need to use these resources appropriately and sustainably and consider water and waste management, smarter transport, environmental enhancements and education and community initiatives.

Westpac Northland Business Champions

In a year impacted by drought, Covid-19 and flooding, this one-off special event gave Northlander’s a chance to shine a light on those businesses and business people in their communities who displayed champion qualities such as leadership, community mindedness, innovation and resilience.

Congratulations to the 2020 winners!
