UOW Pulse has been named as a finalist in the 2018 Green Gown Awards Australasia, shortlisted as one of only three finalists in the Campus Health, Food & Drink category.

The Green Gown Awards is the first and only Award Scheme dedicated to recognising excellence in sustainability within the tertiary education sector in Australasia. Now in their ninth year, the Awards have been firmly established as the most prestigious recognition of sustainability best practice within the tertiary education sector.

The Campus Health, Food & Drink category recognises achievements beyond good practice in the delivery of campus food, drink and hospitality. It celebrates innovation, creativity and consideration for procurement, delivery and communication which has resulted in behaviour changes across staff, students and community.

Over the past 18 months UOW Pulse has reduced UniBar’s waste to landfill by 84% and is establishing sustainable initiatives across other campus outlets.

Winners will be announced on 1 November.
