Concord, New Hampshire – At New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility’s 5th Annual Sustainability Slam, sixteen companies and nonprofits took to the stage to share their sustainability stories with impact. These finalists were selected to present based on the innovativeness, success and scalability of their sustainability initiatives. Each finalist competed live against another company or organization in their presenting category (environment, community, workplace or nonprofit), while the audience voted in real time for the night’s winners.

Held at LaBelle Winery on November 7, 2019, the Slam also featured opportunities for attendees to network and learn from each other throughout the evening.
