Green Awards Nigeria is a new project of Green Business Initiative – An Initiative towards promoting a Green Economy in Nigeria by Development Information Network-DevNet. GBI is designed to make Nigerian companies green by encouraging environmentally sustainable business principles, practices, processes and products. GBI is engaged in programmes that will expose Nigerian businesses to contemporary global environmental issues, provide opportunities, training, and deliberate on sustainable development values. With increasing knowledge of and challenges posed by environmental issues, companies all over the world are beginning to move from complying with environmental regulations to proactive management of natural resources. Stakeholder pressure, bottom line, the complexity of business relationships and the threat from climate change are the four main factors encouraging companies to assess more carefully the environmental risks that they face.
