Triple green accolade for the University of Warwick in UK and Ireland Green Gown finalist announcement
This year’s UK and Ireland Green Gown Awards have announced that the University of Warwick are finalists in three categories of their UK and Ireland Green Gown Awards.
Two Warwick researchers are presenting at this week’s Climate Exp0 online conference, organised by the COP26 Universities Network and the Italian University Network for Sustainable Development (RUS). The conference is part of the official All4Climate Pre-COP programme and aims to showcase international research with relevance to the issues to be tackled at the forthcoming COP26 UN Climate Change conference, taking place in Glasgow in November.
The University of Warwick is not just backing today’s CBI report ‘Greener Miles: Delivering on a net-zero vision for commuting’ – which calls on businesses to shoulder greater responsibility for ensuring their workers adopting greener travel habits – it has already taken action with a two year extensive programme to cut personal car use on campus and therefore reduce emissions.
Researchers have been awarded funding to work with a global leader in the speciality chemicals industry to create cleaner and greener chemical processing methods for everyday products in a bid to help the government meet its carbon neutral targets.
