Project Crimson a finalist in Green Ribbon Awards
18/05/2012

Project Crimson is excited to have been named one of three finalists in the 2012 Green Ribbon Awards, in the Biodiversity Category. 

The Green Ribbon Awards recognise the outstanding contributions of individuals, organisations, businesses and communities to protecting and enhancing New Zealand's environment. For the 2012 awards, 284 nominations were received, which is an increase from last year.

There are 12 award categories and the category in which Project Crimson is a finalist recognises practical actions to protect and preserve New Zealand’s unique species and enhance our biodiversity. Our indigenous biodiversity plays an important part in keeping our water clean, breaking down waste and building soils. This supports our agricultural, horticultural, and tourism-based economy.

The Minister for the Environment will present the Awards at a ceremony at Parliament Buildings on 5 June. Winners will be announced in each category, and an overall supreme winner will be revealed.
