International Green Gown Awards 2017-2018 Winners Announced

Salix, supporting partner of the EAUC, would like to congratulate all the finalists and winners of the International Green Gown Awards 2018.

This year, the International Green Gown Awards ceremony took place in Marseille, France, on 16th May.

The awards formed part of a unique global gathering ‘Global Responsibility, Now’ – in partnership with Global Responsible Leadership Initiative, UN Principles for Responsible Management Education, the Global Alliance of Sustainability Networks and Kedge Business School.

The International Green Gown Awards recognise exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by universities and colleges across the world and cover all aspects of educational institutions, from their teaching and research, leadership, buildings and food to how students can benefit the quality of life in the communities around them.

Established as the most prestigious recognition of sustainability best practice within the education sector globally, the International Green Gown Awards provide benchmarks for excellence and are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals and are supported by the UN, national governments and education bodies.

All the finalists and winners can be found here.

Salix are delighted to have funded numerous energy efficiency projects with Canterbury Christ Church University, winners of the ‘Continuous Improvement; Institutional Change’ category.

Salix and Canterbury Christ Church University have a long-term relationship which has led to an investment of over £1.8 million for energy efficiency projects across their campus since 2010. This has included large-scale LED lighting upgrades as well as financing for Building Energy Management Systems, insulation and heating projects. These projects continue to achieve significant carbon and financial savings for the University, estimated to save over 2,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide and £400,000 each year.
