The Sustainable Business Network celebrated the achievements and innovations of New Zealand’s most sustainable businesses at the 2008 National SBN Awards, held on 9th October at Auckland’s War Memorial Museum. 

Accolades celebrated businesses in many categories demonstrating leadership through their sustainability achievements.  All finalists were already winners of regional Sustainable Business Network Awards.
