The Environment Team in the Estates Directorate were recognised at this year's Staff Excellence Awards for the impact they have made across the University.
The group won the ‘Team of the Year’ award which was aimed at recognising a “group of individuals who, through working together, have made a significant and positive impact”.
Over the past six years, the Team has made a coniserable impact on improving the sustainability of Queen’s and increasing staff and student awareness of environmental issues.
Among their many recent achievements are: an increase in the number of staff and students using sustainable transport; a decrease in waste to landfill; enhanced wildlife and biodiversity on campus; and recognition of staff and students who have made positive steps towards reducing their carbon footprint.
