The Green Gown Awards have been running for 12 years and recognise excellent achievements in sustainability carried out by UK higher education institutions.
The Sustainability Reporting award assesses the quality of sustainability reporting looking at a variety of criteria that includes sustainability KPIs and targets, monitoring and reporting and, above all, how sustainability is factored into the university's operations and core strategy.
The QMUL Sustainability team feel that the report (Annual Report 2014-2015 [PDF 2,245KB]) highlights examples of the excellent work at QMUL relating to sustainability and, where possible, contributions of innovative individuals who are working to support QMUL’s sustainability vision, for example through leading academic research.
The report was completed entirely within the sustainability team who were able to produce a quality report without any expenditure. The report is working towards meeting the GRI G4 framework, reporting against the economic, social and environmental impacts most concerning QMUL’s key stakeholders.
The 2016 Green Gown Awards Ceremony is being held at the Athena in Leicester on Thursday 10th November.
