The Green Impact Awards are given to colleges and departments that introduce and maintain a variety of green initiatives across the board, from sustainable gardening practices to recycling to reducing energy use. In granting the award, Maribel Calvo, Environmental Coordinator for the University of Cambridge, said that the judges were “very impressed with Wolfson's general outlook on sustainability and all actions. Despite having a difficult year they have continued to do almost all the major actions and they are clearly committed to continuing at their gold standard.” The Committee also emphasised our solar panels and LED lighting.
In all 46 awards were given across the University and Colleges for their efforts to improve environmental performance. If you are interested in green issues around the university, subscribe to the Greenlines e-newsletter or follow the Environment and Energy section on Twitter @CambridgeSust.
