Social Responsibility

The winner of the Sensis Social Responsibility Award (which is for demonstrated leadership and contribution by a business to the environment, people, education or the community) at the Telstra Business Awards was Etiko. Etiko makes fair trade sports equipment, shoes and clothes.

What was really amazing was that while Nick was speaking about the reason behind Etiko the whole audience went quiet and actually listened to him, up til then everyone had continued talking though all the speeches.

I think they're doing an amazing job so just wanted to give them a plug. Please go and have a look at their website.

I work for Sensis and we were rapt that Etiko won the Sensis Social Responsibility award.

On the environmental side, if you're interested in learning more about how to 'green' your small business in Australia, have a look at our Small Business Sensis site:, we have a regular contribution from Planet Ark on this topic, along with many other smart business ideas, news, events and case studies.

Kind regards,
