The University Website Programme team would wholeheartedly recommend taking part in the Sustainability Awards. The help, support and online resources are excellent which makes the tasks easy and enjoyable to complete.

Sustainability is an essential aspiration for the University and can also save a lot of money but the big surprise for us was how much fun it all was. It became a focal point for the team over a number of weeks and helped pull the team closer together.
