Change is not easy. It is complicated, unknown and the road towards it is often bumpy. But what might make it all easier is not having to do it alone. Having peer support, advice, and inspiration instead. We built the community of Rimi Baltic Sustainability Awards with this particular goal in mind. If we could bring together Baltic startup, sustainability, and business organizations to share ideas, experiences, and expertise, it could inspire many to share their achievements.
Our team at Helve is grateful to each and every organization that has joined the initiative. We are thankful to each and every member of these organizations that believed in us and convinced others to do the same. They have joined the Jury, helped us shape the methodology, supported us in reaching organizations and enterprises, shared advice, and their words of encouragement have reminded us repeatedly that real sustainability and innovation success stories must be heard. Meet the organizations of the Rimi Baltic Sustainability Awards community, see what they work on every day, and let us know if you would like to meet some of them; we can definitely make it work! Who knows what wonderful partnerships lay ahead :)
