The Chamber Business Awards 2015 is shining a spotlight on New England’s embrace of sustainability: with the Excellence in Sustainability Award, proudly sponsored by COSTA Group, recognizing businesses’ achievements in reducing the impact of their operations on the environment – either through improved processes, or by through products and services that have positive environmental outcomes.

Award Sponsor, COSTA Group, is Australia’s largest grower, packer and marketer of premium fresh fruit and vegetables.

Oliver Flint, GM – Costa Group comments, “Costa is committed to sustainable agriculture. Not only is it a key strategy for maximising our competitiveness, it's also crucial to ensuring that our country's natural resources are utilised in both an environmentally responsible and efficient manner.”

“We are proud to support the Excellence in Sustainability Award, to encourage innovation and – most importantly – help ensure businesses in our region can learn from, and be inspired by each other’s corporate sustainability successes.”
