Now in their 8th year, the Green Gown Awards recognise the exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by tertiary education across the UK. The Green Gown Awards are firmly established as the most prestigious recognition of sustainability excellence in the tertiary education sector.

In these changing and challenging times, it is now more important than ever to ensure that sustainability remains on the sector’s agenda and becomes recognised as the key element that can transform our institutions and our future students. This year’s applicants show that through sustainability initiatives, significant efficiencies and savings can be achieved, and the value we bring to society, the economy and the planet can be maximised and recognised.

Winners and Highly Commended Awards were bestowed across 13 categories and included the inaugural launch of the Green Gown “International Awards” with the winners of the three international categories from the UK and Australia (Continuous Improvement: Institutional Change, Social Responsibility and Student Initiatives and Campaigns) contesting this prestigious recognition.

In an effort to promote dissemination of good practice, all the 2012 Green Gown winners, highly commended entries and finalists have all been asked to provide a case study and a short video on their projects. These are supported by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).

We congratulate all winners, highly commended entries and finalists and thank you all for sharing your inspiring initiatives.
