Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Sustainability Awards Ceremony 2016

You are cordially invited to the 2016 Sustainability Awards Ceremony!

The Sustainability Awards, which have been running since 2010, offer an opportunity for staff and students to contribute towards the University of Edinburgh becoming more socially responsible and sustainable.

Each year we come together to recognise the contribution of all participants, inspire others to take action, and to celebrate the University of Edinburgh's commitment to sustainability.

Awards Ceremony 2016

Staff and students are invited to join us on Wednesday 13 April to celebrate the winners’ achievements and meet with others from around the University who share our committment to social responsibility and sustainability issues.

This year's ceremony will be hosted by Hugh Edmiston, Director of Corporate Services, and Jonny Ross-Tatam, EUSA President, who will be presenting locally-crafted and sustainably-sourced trophies for the following categories:

  • Student Society, recognising societies that have carried out the best sustainability projects in the student community
  • Student Residence, recognising students who have worked in their halls to improve sustainability in their daily practices
  • Special Awards, recognising the best staff and student sustainability projects in energy, sustainable labs, sustainability impact, innovation for sustainability, and outstanding contribution

The awards ceremony will be hosted at Edinburgh Centre on Carbon Innovation (ECCI), a hub for bringing low carbon leaders and practitioners from business, finance and the public sector together to turn good ideas into reality

Please note that doors will open from 1pm, with the event starting promptly at 1.15pm.
