Go Green Week (28 February - 4 March) will mark the re-launch of the Aston Go Green Awards. These awards give staff the opportunity to get involved with Aston's efforts to improve environmental performance and awareness at our University.
You can sign up on behalf of your department, academic group or work team – the sooner you sign up the longer you will have to complete the workbook and improve your chances of being at the top of the leader board. All those of you who signed up last year will automatically be signed up again and the workbook will be sent out the week following Go Green Week.
The Awards workbook will help you to focus on some of the easy steps you can take to improve sustainability in your department, focusing on actions for energy saving, recycling, paper reduction, etc. This will then be graded and the teams will be ranked against each other – the perfect opportunity to see how you measure up and to get some recognition for your efforts!
Check out the Environment and Sustainability webpages for more details or to sign up for the Aston Go Green Awards contact the Environment Team. The Environment Team will be available in main reception throughout Go Green Week, Monday 28 February – Friday 4 March, to answer any questions you may have.
