The Sustainability Chamber Award Nominations Are Now Open!

The Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce is now accepting nominations for their Annual Awards.   There are many award categories, including our favourite: The Sustainability Award, which we initiated in 2016!  West Coast Expeditions sponsors this community award as part of our ongoing commitment to responsible tourism, furthering our reach as a Green Tourism Gold Award recipient through the Green Tourism Canada assessment.
 
Comox Valley Chamber Sustainability Award Sponsor

The Sustainability Award is presented to a business/organization that:

  • Has environmental and social sustainability embedded in their business/organization model or strategy.
  • Practices environmental responsibility and sustainability with clearly defined goals and actions that reduce impact on the environment and benefit the environment.
  • Practices social responsibility that benefits their employees, customers, community and other stakeholders.
  • Demonstrates measurable results in environmental and social responsibility that provide an advantage for their overall success.
Since 1974, these Chamber Annual Awards have recognized local businesses and organizations in the Comox Valley for their entrepreneurial, business, and leadership excellence.  All nominees must operate in the Comox Valley, but anyone from outside the region can nominate a business and organization, or even two or three!
