Business and Community Shares (BACS) in New Zealand, has announced the 20 shortlisted companies who are being considered for three 2015 good business egg awards within the categories of; health, education and community empowerment.
The announcement comes ahead of the BACS Good Business Egg Awards Ceremony, taking place in Wellington in late April, presented by The Hon. Jo Goodhew, Minister for the Community and Voluntary Sector.
“Although we don’t know yet who will win the three awards we do know that this year it has been more difficult as the original list has grown by 30 percent”, said Julie Donvin-Irons Director of BACS.
The past year provided 97 business names through questionnaires and feedback from community organisations. The first round brought the number down to 53 companies that were then observed through their own reporting, media and comments from charities.
The shortlist includes LBG members ANZ and NZPost as well as ASB, Auckland Airport, Ballance Agri-Nutrients, Bunnings, Coca Cola Amatil, Chevron, CQHotels Wellington, Contact Energy, Countdown, DB Breweries, Deloitte, Fonterra, KPMG, PGG Wrightson, Vodafone, The Warehouse, Westpac, and Z Energy.
