We are delighted to announce that Murray Edwards College has been presented with a Gold Green Impact Award for the second year in a row.
Green Impact is the University’s environmental accreditation scheme, which encourages and supports Colleges and departments across the University to reduce their environmental impact and improve sustainability.
Teri Byrne, Catering Operations Manager, commented: “I’m absolutely thrilled we’ve won another Gold Award. The team is totally committed to improving sustainability within the College and I’m just so pleased their hard work has paid off.”
The Green Impact auditors spoke very positively about the work that’s taking place throughout the College: “It was great how they had managed to get the whole College in the spirit of sustainability, for example through allowing anyone to forage fruit from the orchard and sharing recipes cooked at formal dinners.” The auditors were particularly impressed with how we have managed to make sustainability a core element of people’s roles within the College, and our commitment to involving both the College community and the local community in all things environmental.
Many congratulations to all those who contributed to this impressive achievement!
