About the Awards
Established in 2004, the Green Gown Awards recognise the exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by universities and colleges across the UK. With sustainability moving up the agenda, the Awards have become established as the most prestigious recognition of best practice within the further and higher education sector.
The Green Gown Awards are administered by the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC) and are governed by a cross agency steering group.
The judging panel are representatives of sector organisations.
The Awards grow every year and have an international presence - following the huge success of the UK Awards, the Australasian Green Gown Awards were established in 2010 and the French speaking Green Gown Awards - Les trophées des campus responsables - were established in 2014.
