The awards formed part of B1G1's Business for Good Conference celebrating 150 million giving impacts worldwide, held in Singapore.
"This award recognises your stunning achievement of making a massive and sustainable difference to our world and to the lives of people in it," said B1G1 CEO and Founder Masami Sato.
"You haven't just set an example – you continue to be one. Many congratulations!"
Collins Hume's purpose is to inspire business owners to achieve business and lifestyle success in powerful and meaningful ways.
"We believe there has never been a more exciting time to be in business. And it's very clear that successful, profitable businesses are the lifeblood of the communities in which we live," said Business Manager and Giving Coordinator David Keith (pictured centre).
"At Collins Hume we're privileged to be able to live, work and play in Ballina – one of the most beautiful and prosperous places in Australia. On our doorstep we can choose to partake in any number of lifestyle choices, we thrive in our locale and our kids are healthy and strong. That is why we pay special attention to giving back locally, nationally and globally, especially supporting people all over the world with the basics such as clean drinking water, education and hope."
"Collins Hume are a stunning example of what all accounting firms could be doing. We and all of the people they've profoundly impacted are enormously grateful for the leadership they are showing in this critically important area," B1G1 Chairman Paul Dunn added. "And they're the only accounting firm in the world to be mentioned in Parliament."
