The Circle Awards and TMRRW founder, Nick Hoskin said, “Our highly successful inaugural awards last year proved there are plenty of businesses in this region leading in positive impact for people and the planet whilst also being commercially successful. This is however a relatively new market so we must continue spotlighting those getting it right and inspiring more people to join the movement.

“These are more than just awards, one of our major goals is to build a passionate community for environmental and social impact, and foster a culture of collaboration and collective action. By doing this we inspire businesses and individuals to do and be better, for our communities and the environment.”

The Circle Awards AUS & NZ submissions close on 20 September, 2022.
