Now in its second year, the Ethical Enterprise Award is open to any Australian business or organisation of any size that delivers innovative, ethical, positive social, environmental and economic impact in local, state, national or international sectors.
“Ethical enterprises in Australia are booming, with conservative figures placing the number of social enterprises at around 20,000*.” said Susanna Bevilacqua, CEO Moral Fairground, award co-founder.
Last year’s winner, Western Desert Dialysis, a mobile dialysis service in Alice Springs, exemplified the type of organisation the award is looking to recognise.
“We look for organisations that are trying to change the conversation about the power and impact of profits,” said Paul Smith from Australian Ethical, award co-founder.
Winners of the award will receive national recognition of their efforts, as well as a variety of prizes, which include advertising and business development opportunities.
