South Pole Australia has been awarded "Best Newcomer/Rising Star" in SwissCham's 2018 Swiss Business Awards, which recognise the Zurich-based sustainability solutions provider's outstanding contributions to innovation, sustainability and social responsibility in Australia and beyond.
SwissCham Australia awarded South Pole the prize for its efforts to facilitate cross-sector climate action, contributions to Swiss-Australian relations, and excellence in sustainability and social responsibility, with particular focus on the company's innovative EcoAustralia™ carbon credit product.
" Receiving the 2018 Swiss Business Award for Best Newcomer/Rising Star is yet another exciting achievement for South Pole Australia, and is testament to the hard work of the team, our ongoing commitment to the region, and our innovative carbon and energy solutions. We couldn't be prouder!" said Tom Schroder, Director Marketing & Communications, South Pole.
Winning the Swiss Award for Best Newcomer/Rising Star marks another significant milestone for the company, and follows the successful incubation and recent sale of its majority share in Australian carbon farming project developer, Climate Friendly.
