The University celebrated its sustainability stars at a prestigious awards event on 12 June, when Professor Mark Pollard, Associate Head of Division (Research), presented gold awards to the Blavatnik School of Government and the School of Geography and the Environment.

The Sustainability Showcase recognises the work that’s been done over the last year by staff and students under various schemes aimed at reducing the University’s environmental impact.

Held at the Sheldonian Theatre and then the Bodleian Library’s Divinity School, the Showcase attracted more than 150 people from across the University. Professor William James, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Planning and Resources and Jack Hampton President of Oxford University Student’s Union, hosted the evening after a welcome from Paul Goffin, Director of Estates.

There were awards for the work of the nearly 300 people in 33 teams across the University who have entered this year’s Green Impact scheme. They have taken more than 1,500 actions aimed at cutting the environmental impact of their workplaces including laboratories and colleges. Around 40 awards were given out.
