The Green Ribbon Awards recognize outstanding achievements in campus sustainability. Each year, one award to an individual or group is made in each of the categories:
In celebration of the Sustainability Office’s 10th year on campus, a new category was added – The Beth Savan Honourary Green Ribbon Award. Beth Savan, Senior Lecturer Emeritus, School of the Environment, has been an integral part, not only of the formation of the Sustainability Office, but of the general sustainability program on campus.
Nominees’ actions should have made a direct and positive contribution to the sustainability of St. George campus. Their contribution may directly conserve natural resources or influence conservation of resources; promote biodiversity; increase awareness of the need for sustainable behaviour; encourage and assist members of the university community to adopt more sustainable behaviours; or help establish a campus culture allowing this to happen.
The current St. George community are eligible for the student, student group, innovation, faculty and staff categories. Past members of the St. George community are eligible for the Honourary category. External partners that work/support members of the St. George community are eligible for the external category.
