EAUC Current Led Activities

Green Gown Awards
Established in 2004, the Green Gown Awards recognise the exceptional sustainability initiatives being undertaken by universities and colleges across the world.

Sustainability Exchange
Initially funded by HEFCE, this project facilitates the sharing of good practice and to support the development of good practice where none exists, Staffordshire University in partnership with EAUC developed and implemented an interactive web-based HE repository of sustainability technical guidance and case studies. This is now fully delivered by EAUC. Visit

Sustainability Leadership Scorecard
To better support our Members, EAUC has partnered with AUDE to deliver the Sustainability Leadership Scorecard. This vital tool is free to all EAUC members. At last we have a transformational ‘All in One’ tool which captures data and performance from many sources and builds one definitive picture of your institutions performance.

Universities & Colleges Climate Commitment for Scotland 
100% of Scotland’s universities and colleges have publicly declared their intention to address the challenges of climate change and reduce their carbon footprints by signing the Universities and Colleges Climate Commitment for Scotland (UCCCfS).

Platform for Sustainability Performance in Education
The Platform brings together organisations which have created sustainability assessment tools designed to support universities and colleges around the world. The purpose is to promote sustainability assessment in education. By coming together, it is our goal that more universities and colleges learn about the value of sustainability assessment tools to improve the sustainability performance across the whole of their institution.
