QNET, a global lifestyle and wellness-focused direct selling company, has won two Bronze Stevie® Awards at The International Business Awards 2023, in recognition of its dedicated efforts to combat climate change and the transformative rebranding of its wellness brand, with a renewed focus on holistic lifestyles. The award ceremony, attended by over 100 winning companies, took place at the luxurious Cavalieri by the Waldorf Astoria in Rome, Italy, on October 13, 2023.
The distinguished International Business Awards program acknowledged QNET’s substantial contributions to these vital causes, honoring the company in the following categories:
- Communication or PR Campaign of the Year: Climate Change for QNET’s a global reforestation programme launched in 2021 through a partnership with the Certified B Corporation EcoMatcher. This initiative launched with QNET forests in the Philippines, Kenya, and the United Arab Emirates in the first phase. Since then, the programme has expanded to include numerous other countries, including Indonesia, Turkey, and Algeria. QNET has also embarked on various green and sustainability-focused projects in collaboration with international partners.
- Rebranding/Brand Renovation of the Year for QNET’s Wellness portfolio, Amezcua. Amezcua offers an innovative, science-backed range of wellness products designed to promote holistic well-being for modern consumers. In December 2022, QNET undertook a strategic repositioning of the Amezcua brand to redefine and elevate its market presence in the fiercely competitive wellness industry. The new direction centers on the concept of “holistic living,” presenting Amezcua as a brand that enhances modern lifestyles.
Malou Caluza, CEO of QNET, expressed, “These accolades are a testament to our unwavering commitment to promoting better health, better lifestyle, and a better planet. Our Green Legacy reforestation program and the transformation of our Amezcua Wellness portfolio are emblematic of our dedication to sustainability and holistic living. We believe that by taking care of our planet and prioritizing holistic well-being, we contribute not only to our own success but also to a brighter and healthier future for all.”
