Green Gown Awards – 2017 – Carbon Reduction

Carbon Reduction image #1 Carbon Reduction image #2

This category recognises initiatives which have achieved significant reductions in the carbon footprint of an institution through the likes of:

Energy consumption and source; Waste reduction, recycling and responsible disposal; Sustainable travel planning and management.

There is no presumption that institutions will have participated in the Carbon Trust’s Carbon Management Programme, or other such activities, although activities connected with this are certainly eligible. Applications are only likely to be successful if they provide considerable quantitative evidence on the nature of the improvements made and demonstrate a causal relationship between activities undertaken and improvements achieved. Carbon reduction has to be in line with wider sustainability principles and to clarify if the carbon reductions have had any negative/positive consequences elsewhere. 

Applications must also demonstrate real improvement, rather than precursor activities such as foot-printing or setting of targets. Refer to CO2 bullet 2 in the generic criteria.
