NEMO, the award-winning, independent designer of outdoor gear and accessories built to improve the adventure experience, has won New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility’s (NHBSR) Measure What Matters Community Award. NHBSR celebrated the leading efforts of the state’s most environmentally and socially conscious businesses at the NH Sustainability Awards, held earlier this month. The event celebrated the incredible work of New Hampshire companies and individuals driving positive change throughout the pandemic.
The 2022 Sustainability Award Winners were recognized for their demonstrated leadership in Community, Environment, Governance, Workplace and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion efforts. The event also highlighted the outstanding efforts of the state’s next generation of sustainability leaders from its universities, as well as business leaders with systemic, robust and enduring impact within New Hampshire.
Measure What Matters, Community Award: “NEMO was recognized for its focus on building community and keeping it inclusive. The company focuses on tearing down barriers during a time when we desperately need access to adventure,” said NHBSR’s release titled, Stepping Up During the Pandemic, NH Businesses Recognized.
“NEMO has a wide lens when it comes to sustainability,” said NEMO’s VP of Marketing, Darren Josey. “We must make real reductions in carbon while also investing in both existing and new enthusiasts having a lifetime of adventure. We believe if someone has a great time backpacking or car camping, they are more likely to help preserve this planet for future generations, which is why we created our Adventure Resources page. We want everyone to be inspired, learn new skills, find places to go, and people to go with.”
Additional honorees this year included Northeast Delta Dental, Mascoma Bank, MobilityWorks, Lonza Biologics and ReVision Energy.
