The Green Gown Awards Australasia, now in their 3rd year in 2012, is firmly becoming the most prestigious recognition of sustainability best practice within the tertiary education sector, following in its UK founders footsteps.
In addition to the recognition of excellence for those successful institutions, the other main aim of the Awards is to share the best practice stories with the sector. With the creation of an international resources sharing facility with our sister organisation, disseminating best practice has never been more important or easier. The integrity of the Awards is maintained by the high quality of applications, the rigorous assessment of applications by independent judges and the support of their sponsors and the wider sector.
In order to maintain and enhance the excellence, we want to share with you the journey of our winning and highly commended institutions. To this aim a series of best practice case studies of a number of the winning and highly commended entries of the 2012 Green Gown Awards Australasia are now available. We're delighted to share these institutions sustainable journey with the Sustainability Exchange and the wider UK sector.
