Nominations for special awards now open

The Sustainability Awards offer an opportunity for staff and students to make a difference and contribute towards our University becoming more socially responsible and sustainable.

Sustainability awards

From this week, it’s possible to submit your application for this year’s Special Awards. While our Office and Lab Awards use a toolkit-based approach for teams to get recognition for their efforts, the Special Awards recognise specific impactful sustainable projects taking place in 2016/17.

The Special Awards are open to all staff*, including staff/student collaboration projects. One Special Award will be given in each of the following categories:

  • Energy
  • Sustainability Impact
  • Sustainable Labs
  • Innovation for Sustainability
  • Outstanding Contribution (individual – please note that you may not nominate yourself for this award)

Whether or not you’ve taken part in the Sustainability Awards before, we just need a 500 word description of how your project or work has contributed to Sustainability at the University of Edinburgh in one of the categories above, to be submitted by 24th February 2017. Entries will be shortlisted and one winner per category will be selected by a panel of senior staff for award at our Sustainability Awards ceremony on 28th March 2017.
