“It is our privilege and honour as a non-profit voice for sustainability to recognise the work of these dedicated companies whose examples have raised the green standard for the spa industry around the planet,” said Paul Schmidt, executive director of the Green Spa Network.

The winners were chosen based on various criteria, including achieving the highest level of sustainability compared to their peers; continuous improvement; setting an example of best practice for the industry to follow; as well as making sustainable practices inviting and desirable to consumers and employees.

The judging panel included Julie Keller Callaghan, editor-in-chief of American Spa Magazine; Mary Bemis, editorial director of Insider’s Guide to Spas; Debrianna Berlin of yoga company Kiss The Sky; and Shelley Lotz of Vios Spa Group.

“It's rewarding to see so many businesses striving for sustainability because of their values and conscious leadership,” said Lotz.

“The Green Spa Network Awards programme is important in recognising the tireless efforts of those who work hard day after day in making the spa industry even more sustainable. It is truly a labour of love and the nominees are always inspiring and impressive.”

In addition to these industry awards, the GSN board of directors recognised Robert Zimmer of Zimmer Associates as this year’s Visionary Award recipient and further acknowledged outstanding contributions from the organisation’s volunteer roster with a new award.

Named in honour of one of GSN’s Founders, the inaugural Tara Grodjesk Dedicated Contributor Award recipients are Rona Berg, Organic Spa Magazine; Tessa Kienow, Ready Care Industries; Lisa Sykes, Universal Companies; Shelley Lotz, Vios Spa Group.
