The finalists in this year’s Sustainability Awards have been announced, with six entrants making the shortlist of the Women in Sustainability category. (Read more about them below.)
Our business has been the sponsor of this category since its introduction in 2019, but this will be the first time under the Siniat brand.
“We are very excited to meet this year’s finalists,” said Stephanie Olsen, Siniat Marketing Manager.
“It’s great to see the interest in this category growing year on year. We specifically chose to sponsor this category because sustainability is very close to our heart at Siniat. We believe in investing in people and recognizing the hard work of professionals who are actively leading the way towards a more sustainable future,” Stephanie said.
“We are also proud of being involved with a sponsorship that supports women in what is in many respects still a male dominated industry,” she said.
The Sustainability Award winners will be announced on 11 November 2021 during a digital event.
Also taking place on this date is the Sustainability Summit, worth 5 formal CPD points. Siniat’s National WHS & Sustainability Manager Kathryn Walker will participate in the panel discussion ‘Women in Built Environment Sustainability Leadership’
