NZBEF Quest for Excellence Conference has been Postponed until November 2022.

The NZBEF Board has been advised that there is likely to be a resurgence of Covid numbers additional to the seasonal flu outbreaks during the winter months. This could place undue risk on attendees, speakers and sponsors.

We also believe that it is important to have this conference as a face-to-face event as networking is a vital purpose of every NZBEF conference.  In response, we have taken the decision to move the conference to November 2022.  We will be advising the dates as soon as we have finalised all the administrative details.

There has been terrific interest in the conference, with a world class speaker line up covering International and New Zealand leaders in business sustainability and the new ESG frameworks of excellence. There is a growing recognition that to successfully deploy the new environmental, social and governance standards we need a strong healthy professional community.

NZBEF welcome and are grateful for your support and look forward to your participation in November 2022.


2022 Quest for Excellence: Conference Information

Climate change, pandemics, labour morality and digital innovation are re-shaping the world of business. New consumer and investor values and behaviours are driving new definitions of business excellence. There is great danger in Greenwashing. Claiming sustainable practices but not delivering. What business needs is a professional community that understands these new frameworks and how to audit, report and monitor them.

 NZBEF brings this new world to you. A world where old frameworks of excellence are challenged, new frameworks emerge, and new ways of auditing and reporting evolve to ensure consumer values are delivered.

Who is it For? The conference is for executives  concerned with implementation of the new standards in business. You want to find out about these new frameworks?  How to conduct a Gap Analysis and how to monitor and measure progress.  It is also for professional training and auditing organisations who will support business in this new world.    

Featuring the Best Practice Competition :

  • The 3rd New Zealand Best Practice Competition, and
  • the 1st New Zealand Environmental, Social, & Governance (ESG) Excellence Award.
