Change is not easy. It is complicated, unknown, and the road towards it is often bumpy. But not having to do it alone might make it all easier. Having peer support, advice, and inspiration instead. We continue building and expanding the community of Baltic Sustainability Awards with this particular goal in mind. We bring together Baltic startup, sustainability, and business community organizations and create a platform to share ideas, experiences, and expertise.
Our team is grateful to each and every organization that has joined the initiative. 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 Baltic Sustainability Awards community organizations, 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!
