Sustainability awards

UWE Bristol and The Students' Union at UWE have gained external recognition for their efforts to improve their sustainability performance across the board – for their teaching and research, for their professional services and for the dynamism and creativity of individual students and staff.


In June 2016 we became the first UK University to receive the NUS Responsible Futures Accreditation under the full scheme. Later in the year, we gained particular recognition in the 2016 Green Gown Awards, where we were winners in four different categories and runners-up in another two. In further recognition, we were awarded two International Green Gown Awards in March 2017. In June 2017 we received an ‘Excellent’ accreditation in the NUS Green Impact awards and were overall winner and in November we were finalists in nine categories and highly commended in three of the 2017 Green Gown awards.
