The University of Worcester wins at the Green Gown Awards 2019  


Congratulations to The University of Worcester who have been named Sustainability Institution of the Year at the Green Gown Awards! They were also ranked 1st in the UK for Quality Education and Gender Equality and 33rd in the world in the recent University Impact Rankings.


For many years The University of Worcester has consistently featured at the top of the People and Planet league and is known for the sustainable practices of its buildings (renovation and new buildings, such as The Hive), their integration of sustainability into their curriculum, and notably their work with the community and with students. 

The University is deeply committed to a democratic culture of inclusion, educational excellence and beneficial impact in society. Strong, sustained and supportive leadership, transparent reporting of challenges as well as successes. Small sustained gains involving all staff are they keystones to how this has been achieved and why the award was won. 


Since 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 tertiary education.


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.
