WWF and Sanlam water partnership lauded at this year's M&G Greening the Future Awards
Sanlam and WWF also became the first winners of the inaugural Sudley Adams Memorial Award. This Award has been introduced this in honour of Sudley Adams, the Mail & Guardian’s Brand Manager and Convenor of the awards for the past decade who passed in May 2012. According to the Mail & Guardian, the judges considered all the entries for this special Award and decided the one that best embodied Sudley’s forward-thinking vision and team spirit was the WWF Sanlam Living Waters Partnership.
Fiona Macleod, editor of the M&G Greening the Future supplement, said the partnership was an exemplary model for other conservation initiatives. "Sanlam's continued support for WWF SA's water programmes has been endorsed through the buy-in of other companies. The partnership presents win-win solutions for some of South Africa's most pressing natural resources problems, and as such is a deserving winner of Greening the Future's two top awards.”
