Younity sponsors new Sustainability Award at 2020 NZ CIO Awards

Younity has been announced as the naming rights sponsor for the Sustainability through Technology Award at the 2020 NZ CIO Awards, part of the CIO Summit to be held on 25-26 August 2020. This is a new, prestigious award recognising technology teams that create real outcomes for sustainability.

Younity is delighted announce that they have become a sponsor of the 2020 CIO Awards, part of the 2020 CIO Summit and Awards event held at Spark Arena on the 25th-26th August 2020.

The New Zealand CIO Awards, in conjunction with the 2020 CIO Summit, celebrate and recognise individuals and teams who have shown leadership, innovation and foresight in their contribution to ICT and business.

Younity has sponsored the “Sustainability through Technology” award, brand new for 2020 in a area close to our heart. This award honours and recognises the achievements of organisations that have successfully planned and executed a sustainability initiative through the use of technology.

The winner will be using technology and innovation to drive a sustainable initiative within an organisation that has produced a range of benefits for the organisation and/ or communities. The initiative or project could address any or all of the three pillars of sustainability, being economic, environmental, and/or social (profits, planet and people).

Examples could include:

  • Sustainable procurement or supply chain initiatives
  • Using technology to reduce carbon & energy consumption footprint
  • Smart City initiatives
  • Circular economy initiatives

Given current worldwide attention on climate change and increasing focus on creating sustainable business practices at board and senior management level, this award should be highly sought after!

We’re very happy to secure this particular sponsorship opportunity. Sustainability is an important topic, and will only increase in urgency in light of the challenges that we face the world over. Younity are committed to doing our bit, and it is a cause that we are proud to support.

Mark Warren – Co-Founder & Auckland Consulting Manager
