10k on Offer for ‘Ethical Enterprises’
Wednesday, 10th September 2014 at 10:18 am

Entries close this month for the 2014 Ethical Enterprise Awards, a free awards scheme offering organisations the chance to take home cash and prizes for ethical practice.

Presented by Victorian-based social enterprise Moral Fairground and superannuation and investment fund manager Australian Ethical Investment, the award recognises organisations that deliver innovative, ethical, positive social, environmental and economic impact in local, state, national or international sectors.

The winning organisation receives national recognition as well as a variety of prizes, which including advertising and business development opportunities and a $10,000 cash prize.

“Ethical enterprises in Australia are booming, with conservative figures placing the number of social enterprises at around 20,000,”Susanna Bevilacqua, CEO of Moral Fairground said.

“And this doesn’t take into account the diversity emerging in the not-for-profit sector as they monetise their impacts and initiatives, and also within the private sector, as corporate social responsibility continues to innovate and become more sophisticated in its approach.”

“We look for organisations that are trying to change the conversation about the power and impact of profits, award co-founder Paul Smith from Australian Ethical said.

“The Ethical Enterprise Award is a crucial tool in dispelling the myth that to have positive impact you have to shed your profitability. Nothing could be further from the truth.”

The awards are open to all eligible Australian-based registered businesses or organisations of any size.

Last year’s winner was Not for Profit, non-Government Indigenous-governed health organisation, Western Desert, which offers a holistic model of care for people needing kidney dialysis who would otherwise be forced to leave their communities to access treatment in Alice Springs.

Moral Fairground, operating since 2009, says its aim is to create positive social impact by increasing economic opportunities and fairness within society, including creating avenues for enterprises to become more effective in delivering their social mission.

Applications close 5pm September 30. Find out more here
