Eco-Logic Awards Finalists Announced


A top-level panel of Judges has announced the finalists for the Eco-Logic Awards 2015/16.


These awards, hosted by The Enviropaedia, identify and give recognition to individuals, organisations, products and services that are making a real and measurable difference in creating a more sustainable world to live in.


Says David Parry-Davis, editor of The Enviropaedia and convener of the Eco-Logic Awards: “We received a huge increase in the number and quality of entries this year, ranging from big corporate institutions to small communities and committed individuals. We are greatly inspired by the remarkable work that so many South Africans are doing to  create a more sustainable environment and society to live in. Judges were hard-pressed to select finalists and winners from the hundreds of high quality entries received.”


Judges were selected from senior management within the environmental, business, Government and media sectors in order to achieve a broad based and balanced perspective in the judging process. CLICK HERE for a list of judges.
