Over the last few years the last few year the University has been awarded a number of accolades that are linked to sustainability.

Through the work of INSPIRE, we are keen to set the bar high and we take the approach to demonstrate to others that if we can do it then so can everyone else.  Below are links to the awards that we have achieved or are currently working towards.

EAUC Green Gown Awards

This year for the first time the University has entered into the EAUC Green Gown Awards.

The Green Gown Awards are firmly established as the most prestigious recognition of sustainability excellence in the further and higher education sector. They recognise exceptional initiatives being taken by universities and colleges across the UK to become more sustainable.

The Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges (EAUC) is a not-for-profit charity with a membership of over 215 universities and colleges, supporting sustainability within the UK tertiary education sector. Each year, the EAUC host the Green Gown Awards and this year have been fortunate to also host the International Awards as well.

For 2015, the UWTSD Group, inc. Coleg Sir Gar, have submitted a number of applications to 

the first round and we have been successful in becoming EAUC Green Gown finalists in the through to the second round with 9 applications in 6 categories.

The finalist awards will take place on the 26th November 2015 in Bristol.
