St Antony’s recognised with Gold Green Impact Award

St Antony’s is very proud to have received a Gold Green Impact Award. 

The University of Oxford held the eighth awards ceremony for environmental sustainability, hosted by the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Irene Tracey on 20 June at the Bodleian Libraries Divinity School, to celebrate the contributions of the Colleges and Departments towards the University’s strategic environmental goals of net zero carbon and biodiversity net gain by 2035.

We are delighted to have received Gold accreditation in the national Green Impact scheme. This award recognises the work of our Green Team, led by staff members Nicole Wyatt and Caroline Davies. They have implemented a range of initiatives around the College Estate, engaging with our college community, taking measures to improve biodiversity, encouraging greener travel options, providing vegan and vegetarian food, and donating surplus food, as well as taking actions to reduce energy consumption around the estate.  

As well as a Gold Green Impact Award, our Bursar, Dr Tanya Baldwin was runner-up in the Environmental Sustainability Staff Awards. Tanya has made a great impact on making our College a more sustainable place to live and work, enthusing and encouraging staff initiatives, including the work of the Green Impact Team, as well as driving forward strategic plans, and ensuring that we have the data and resources to establish clear timelines for achieving net zero carbon and biodiversity net gain.

Environmental Sustainability is a key strategic priority for St Antony’s in the next five years. Visit our Sustainability page to find out more about the plans we have in place, and how you can get involved.
