In the words of Dr Einir Young, Director of Sustainability at Bangor University:

“It’s just over a year since The Sustainability Lab was established as the corporate focus of sustainability at Bangor University. We are growing into a hub and catalyst for bringing sustainability to life in all aspects of what the University does through research, teaching and learning, public engagement and our campus affairs. It’s relatively early days on our journey towards becoming The Sustainable University so I was delighted to be presented with the award.”
