London Met has been shortlisted for Best Energy Efficiency and CSR Programme award due to its impressive carbon reduction work.
Date: 28 July 2017

London Met has been shortlisted for Best Energy Efficiency and CSR Programme at this year’s Solar Power Portal Awards, ahead of the University’s launch of two sustainability courses.

The Best Energy Efficiency and CSR Programme award of the year recognises companies that have gone above and beyond to change attitudes to sustainability in their business.

London Met’s Sustainability Manager, Rachel Ward, said: "I'm delighted that we have been shortlisted for Best Energy Efficiency and CSR Programme, it is a great reflection of the work we have undertaken at London Metropolitan University over the last five years. 

“We are very passionate about what we do at London Met and have set up two new Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability courses started in September which will allow students to take part in a living lab as we continue to reduce our environmental impact during an exciting time at the University."

The University is launching an MSc and an Advanced Diploma in Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability this September.

Both courses will feature a hands on approach to CSR. They will allow students the unique opportunity to create a “living lab”, where they will be taught through actual projects. Students will also have the opportunity to undertake work placements and to further enhance employment skills.

Now in its fifth year, the Solar Power Portal Awards, invites the best and brightest of the UK’s domestic solar, storage and clean energy institutes to be recognised in front of nearly 600 peers. The awards will be held on Wednesday 4 October and will be hosted by actor and clean energy advocate Robert Llewellyn.
