Q3. Is there a deadline to register for this Challenge?

Q4. Can we add/remove team members during the Challenge?

Q5. Can we make changes to our Sustainable Actions Checklist after it is submitted?
Yes, you can make changes as many times as necessary if they are done firstly, before the deadline of 31 Dec 2019; and secondly, before you email firstname.lastname@example.org to start verification.
Q6. If we decide to take part in the Bonus category (i.e. organising sustainability activities for our colleagues), do we have to start verification of the Bonus category together with that of the Sustainable Actions Checklist?
No, verification of the Sustainable Actions Checklist and Bonus category can be started at different times. However, verification of the Bonus category cannot occur before verification of the Sustainable Actions Checklist.
Q7. If we organise more than one sustainability activity as part of the Bonus category, do we have to start the verification of all of them at the same time?
No, you can start verification of sustainability activities one at a time.

No, you do not have to wait. You can choose to start verification anytime during the Challenge period and you will be notified to collect your prizes as soon as we finish verification.
Q9. In the Sustainable Actions Checklist, under the ‘Water’ section, can we count some of the actions (such as actions 6, 7 and 8) as sustainability activities organised as part of the Bonus category?
Yes, if at least one of your colleagues participating in the action(s) is not a member of any registered team in this Challenge, such action(s) listed in the checklist can be counted as sustainability activities in the Bonus category. However, such action(s) will no longer be counted towards fulfilling the requirements of the Sustainable Actions Checklist.
