Canadian Entrepreneurship gives high priority to sustainability. The small business industry, in particular, emphasizes the need to adopt environmentally friendly practices into their business operations to ensure that profits are not made at the expense of the planet where they live. As a result, many small businesses have formulated sustainable practices that provide an ethical way of conducting business. A few of the ways small businesses bring in their social and environmental responsibility to their operations include incorporating sustainable packaging, providing reusable jars and refilling options, opting for reduced carbon footprint fulfillment, and choosing to collaborate with companies with shared principles.
The CanadianSME Awards is a platform that highlights these sustainable practices of small businesses and honors them for incorporating these practices into their business structure and operations, recognizing their initiatives to be more than a profit-making business and to be a brand that is responsible to society in which they operate and to the earth in which they live.
The Sustainable Business Award
The Sustainable Business Award recognizes the efforts of small businesses committed to environmental and social responsibility. The award recognizes businesses working to make the world more sustainable through their products, services, or activities. Small businesses with fewer than 500 employees that have been in business for at least three years are eligible for the award while showing commitment to sustainability, innovation, and growth. Every year, the CanadianSME Small Business Magazine bestows the award to highlight small businesses’ accomplishments that pave the way to a more sustainable future.
