Green Impact Awards 2014-2015 Winners Announced

The University announced the winners of its annual Green Impact Awards at a joint ceremony with the University Hospitals Bristol Trust in the Orangery at Goldney Hall celebrating the hard work teams have put into greening their departments.

The event was hosted by Professor Judith Squires, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Education and Students and Nigel Phillips Estates Manager at the Hospitals Estates and Trust, and was attended by over 100 staff from across the University and Hospital, teams were presented with awards made either from recycled windscreens or reclaimed roofing slates.  

The overall winner prize went to Print Services in a very close contest with the Engineering Faculty Office and Student Counselling Service, with just ten points between them.

Other awards went to 3 teams achieving Platinum, 4 teams for Gold, with all 6 of the catering teams also achieving the Gold standard for their work, 2 teams for Silver, 6 for Bronze Plus award and 2 for Bronze.

Special Awards, for the additional actions that teams took, included ‘Best Newcomer’ which went to Cellular Molecular Medicine Professional Team. 'Best Improver' awarded to the team that has increased its score the most since last year went to Sports Exercise and Health.  'Community Action‘ awarded for their work on the print transformation project went to Print Services.  The 'Proudest Green Impact Achievement'  started out as a project to bring the 'outside in' with the aim of providing students a space of calm within their hectic lives, has led to a research project to test the positive psychological impact of consciously engaging with the natural world, won by the Student Counselling Services.

Well done to everyone involved this year. - Martin Wiles
