Social Responsibility and Sustainability

Sustainability Awards Ceremony 2017

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 2017

Staff and students are invited to join us on Tuesday 28th March to celebrate the winners’ achievements and meet with others from around the University who share our commitment to social responsibility and sustainability issues.

Recipients will be presented with locally-crafted and sustainably-sourced trophies for the following categories:

  • Office Awards (gold, silver and bronze)
  • Lab Awards (gold, silver and bronze)
  • Student Awards, recognising student groups that have delivered impactful projects across the university campus, and student residences that have worked embedded sustainable practises in their halls.
  • Special Awards, recognising the best staff led sustainability projects in energy, sustainable labs, sustainability impact, innovation for sustainability, and outstanding contribution

The awards ceremony will be hosted at in the prestigious Playfair Library in Old College.

Lunch will be provided from 12.30pm, before the ceremony commences at 1pm. You will also have the opportunity to browse the range of stalls and have your photograph taken in our very own SRS photo booth!
