Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics

18th Annual Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics will be held in December 2015.


Application & Entry Dealine: August 27th @ 5:00pm

What are the “BBB Torch Awards? The mission of your BBB is to promote and foster the highest ethical relationship between businesses and the public through voluntary self-regulation, consumer and business education, and service excellence. In this spirit, your BBB conducts an annual awards program to gain public recognition for businesses and organizations that maintain a solid commitment to conducting their business practices in an ethical fashion. Each year, companies of different sizes are selected through a regional competition to receive a Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics. Winning entries will then be forwarded to the Council of Better Business Bureau’s International Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics competition.

The Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics is designed to promote not only the importance of ethical business practices, but the willingness and efforts made by outstanding businesses to ensure that our marketplace remains fair and honorable. Every winner and finalist of a BBB Torch Award has an unprecedented opportunity for public recognition and well-deserved visibility.

The Torch Awards for Marketplace Ethics is open to all businesses and organizations that service San Diego and/or Imperial County markets. Companies must be in good standing with BBB; however, BBB Accreditation is not a requirement for entry or consideration.
