March 3, 2011–Today the Network for Business Innovation and Sustainability found out it is a 2011 Communitas Awards winner. Communitas Awards recognize exceptional businesses, organizations and individuals for excellence in community service and corporate social responsibility. NBIS was recognized in the category of “Sustainability.”
The Communitas Awards is an international effort to recognize the spirit of communitas people helping people. Communitas winners unselfishly give of themselves and their resources, and are changing the way they do business to benefit their communities. Communitas winners are recognized for specific programs involving volunteerism, philanthropy or ethical, sustainable business practices.
This is huge recognition not just for NBIS, but for all the board members and volunteers who donate their time and experience to the mission of delivering expertise, education, and networking opportunities to business professionals who are leading their companies and communities toward profitable sustainability.
