5th September 2014
We would like to congratulate our valued EAUC Member, Royal Agricultural University
for their nominations for two exciting awards!
The first award nomination is for Pearl Costello who has been shortlisted for the Grow Gloucestershire Showcase Awards, in the Outstanding Intern category
. These awards are to recognise talented young people and the contributions they have made to businesses.
Pearl joined the RAU as the Environmental Graduate Trainee to assist in raising awareness, improving environmental performance and implementing an accredited EMS.
The RAU quotes "In a very short space of time, Pearl she has really made a difference throughout the University and has exceeded all expectations. Levels of awareness are much higher, action plans are in place and RAU now has accreditation to phase 3 of BS8555, all thanks to her hard work. She also found time to be a member of the panel selecting speakers for the 2014 EAUC conference. She not only applied her considerable knowledge, but also brought immense enthusiasm to the job and has a way of getting people to do things! "
