The BACS Living Award

The BACS Living Award evaluation on the Empty Cardboard Box 2016-17

The ‘Empty Cardboard Box Award’

The Awards work as an independent evaluation process capturing activity that is acknowledged by communities as being great CSR initiatives, rather than business promotions.

 The BACS Good Business Egg Awards

The BACS Good Business Egg (GBE) Awards take businesses nominated by community organisations, and identifies who is fulfilling expectations on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and impacting New Zealand society in a positive way.

The Awards work as an independent evaluation process capturing activity that is acknowledged by communities as being great CSR initiatives, rather than business promotions.  This process identifies what is considered successful by community standards of CSR in New Zealand, providing real, grassroots commentary on the complex nature of CSR. 

Businesses are categorised into three areas: Education and Skills; Community Empowerment; and Health and Wellbeing.

The BACS Social Index Results for New Zealand Business 2017

The BACS Social Index Report 2017

The BACS Social Index was launched in 2016 at a breakfast event kindly hosted by Fonterra in Auckland with a good number of interested businesses and community leaders to find out about another BACS initiative. This year we had our event in Wellington and had a great group of people keen to see and hear the results through the good works over the past year.

 

How the BACS Social Index works

 

The first step for a business to be on the BACS Social Index is to have been nominated by a community/charity organisation and processed through a 7- step criteria through the BACS Good Business Egg Awards. The business does not need to be a member of BACS and cannot submit themselves.

After a considerable process the panel of the 16-18 community leaders makes comments and scores on each of the short- listed businesses. Their decisions provide the winners with a Good Business Egg Award and runners up are also acknowledged. BACS then collect this data over two years to provide a consistent result to grow the BACS Social Index. Read more
