For over a decade, Real Leaders – the world’s first business and sustainable leadership magazine – has been recognising leaders and organisations that make a positive social or environmental impact with the Real Leaders Impact Awards.
We are very proud to announce that for the second straight year, Real Leaders has recognised Arowana's commitment to the triple bottom line of people, planet and profits. This year we’ve earned a No. 27 ranking among the top 150 Impact Companies worldwide.
As a certified B Corp since 2018, we earned this spot thanks to our ‘Force for Good’ score on the B Impact Assessment. We have a long-term commitment to building strong, sustainable businesses that will positively impact economies, industries and the people they employ. Today our operating companies and investments include electric vehicles, renewable energy, vocational education, technology and software, road infrastructure services and impact asset management.
"These top impact companies prove that businesses can thrive by being a force for good" said Mark Van Ness, Founder of Real Leaders. “They are the Real Leaders of the New Economy” added Van Ness.
The 2021 award winners include game-changers such as: Tesla, Beyond Meat, Patagonia and 147 other well-respected impact brands of all sizes and from a variety of industries.
"We are honoured to accept Arowana's second Real Leaders Impact Award" said Kevin Chin, Founder & Chairman of Arowana. "At Arowana we always consider the impact of our actions and strive to act responsibly, and we aspire to see businesses and economies grow in a sustainable way. This aligns with the Real Leaders mission to find profitable solutions that also benefit humankind."
A special ceremony will be held on January 27th, 2021 to honor the winners and will include key impact speakers featuring Seth Goldman, Chairman of Beyond Meat and a musical performance from Michael Franti, world-renowned musician and activist.
