Robinson College are celebrating for a fourth consecutive year after scooping a Gold at the Green Impact Awards presented on 21st June.  The awards were held at the Centre for Mathematical Sciences and presented by Vice Chancellor of the University Professor Stephen Toope. This year 46 awards were given out recognising the efforts of everyone involved across the University and Colleges. Robinson College were 1 of 15 teams to receive a Gold award.

It’s a great achievement as it identifies the hard work and commitment shown by both staff and students alike. In order to achieve the Gold award we have tackled a range of sustainability-related issues such as energy use, recycling and sustainable travel, but also tackling wider environmental issues such as biodiversity, procurement, and sustainable food.

The target for 2019 will be to try and reach Platinum level by attaining an even higher score.  However the real benefits are in the long term environmental successes which are achieved, all of which lead to improved sustainability for the College, Cambridge and the planet!
