Celebrating our collective impact | E-MS Awards 2019

Enviro-Mark Solutions is delighted to announce our upcoming awards – a celebration of climate action success and our collective impact.

We believe a sustainable, low-carbon future will become a reality. While we need more organisations to step up and act, there are proactive organisations already leading the way in climate change mitigation and environmental action. We are delighted to celebrate the leadership shown by organisations from our client-base and our collective impact towards the transition to a low carbon economy.

Enviro-Mark Solutions Awards 2019

About the awards

The Enviro-Mark Solutions Awards are a biennial celebration of success stories in measurable action from the family of businesses certified under our carboNZeroCertTM, CEMARS® and Enviro-Mark® programmes.

The Awards recognise the top carbon reducers and organisations who have shown exceptional leadership in environmental management over the past year. The ceremony is an opportunity to celebrate our clients’ collective achievement in reducing our carbon emissions and impact on our planet.

“The Awards are a way in which we recognise the collective of inspiring organisations we work with and celebrate their amazing work in environmental sustainability,” says Enviro-Mark Solutions CEO, Dr Ann Smith.

“These are organisations leading the way to a low carbon economy, and we are proud to be supporting them on this journey.”
