Sheffield Hallam is a finalist in two of this year’s EAUC Green Gown Awards categories, recognising sustainability best practise in higher education.

Learning and Skills – ‘A sustainable education for future business leaders’

For the work that has been done in partnership with SBS to embed sustainability into every postgraduate and undergraduate course to meet the faculty’s strategic aim of incorporating corporate social responsibility (CSR) and ethics into teaching.

Continuous Improvement – Systems in Harmony

For the work that has been done to streamline our 2 ISO systems, and improve their effectiveness from a business perspective. The introduction of our certified environmental and energy management systems, and their ongoing integration with all activities across the wider University, as well as each other, has ensured continuous improvement in the management of environmental issues at the university since 2011.

Work will now be undertaken to complete the required stage 2 submissions by early September, and a short video case study for each area ahead of the awards ceremony on 10 November 2016.
