Press Release

August 29, 2023 – Given its primary objectives of promoting and sharing sustainable and regenerative practices within the wellness community, GSN will engage with each of our participants in the upcoming Sustainability Awards in order to provide a springboard advantage towards awareness and adoption of sustainable solutions.

From these Awards, GSN will create a dedicated SHARE project that will use media engagement and webinars highlighting some of the noteworthy social and environmentally responsible practices of every entrant, irrespective of their final placing in the awards process. As such, the GSN Planet 2023 Sustainability Awards present a unique opportunity for all participants to showcase their environmental and social efforts.

To provide prospective participants who have requested additional time to finalize their submissions based on ongoing projects, GSN Planet announces a short extension of the closing deadline for the Awards to September 15, 2023.  

An independent judging panel, comprising experts in the sustainability, spa, and wellness industries, will evaluate and award companies and individuals that are leading the way in social and environmental responsibility. GSN Planet aims to discover, recognize, and celebrate significant accomplishments in regeneration and sustainability within the wellness industry.

Entries will be accepted through September 15, 2023 and three finalists per category will be announced on October 15, 2023.  The ultimate winner in each category will be chosen by community voting from October 15-20, 2023. The winners will be announced and the awards ceremony will take place at the GSN 2023 Buyers Conference, which will be held on October 22-25 at the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, WI.

“We are excited to recognize and honor the outstanding sustainability achievements of the wellness industry,” said Maggy Dunphy, Board President of GSN Planet. “Through these awards, we hope to inspire others to embrace sustainable practices and make a positive impact on our planet and communities.”
