Green Ribbon Awards

The Green Ribbon Awards recognize outstanding achievements in campus sustainability.  Awards are made for the nominee’s direct contribution to the minimization of negative impacts on the environment, the conservation of natural resources or the promotion of biodiversity on campus. Alternatively, their contribution may have increased awareness of the need for environmentally sustainable behaviour; encouraged and assisted members of the university community to adopt more environmentally sustainable behaviour; or helped establish a campus culture allowing this to happen.

There are four categories:

  • Student
  • Staff
  • Faculty
  • External business or partner

Nominations can be made for an individual, group, committee, or department.  The nomination period for the 2017 awards is now open!

To make a nomination, please submit the name of the nominee(s), the category they are being nominated for, and a paragraph of approximately 200 words describing why they should be considered for the award.

Nominations should be sent to Chelsea Dalton, at chelsea.dalton@utoronto.ca.  Nominations must be received by Friday, March 17th at 5 pm.
