College Adds Fourth Prize to Green Awards Tally

 Dumfries and Galloway College has added another prestigious environmental award to its trophy case, bringing its total to four for the year.
The South of Scotland college scooped the Sustainability Action Award at the CDN College Awards 2021.

The college won the award for its Leading the way – Net Zero D&G initiative.

Previously, the college took home the Outstanding Project Award at the Scottish Green Energy Awards for its industry-leading Green Energy Centre which sits at the centre of its ambitious plans to reach net zero by 2030 and brings together its on-going work in green technology, skills, and learning.

Before that, the college also won two awards at the Green Gown Awards, winning in both the Campus of the Future and Benefiting Society (Small Institution) categories.

This fourth award further shows that Dumfries and Galloway College is leading the way in green energy, skills, technology, and education both in the South of Scotland and across the country.

Dumfries and Galloway College is proud of its record on environmental issues and is delighted to have been recognised in this way by all these important and innovative awards programmes.

Further, the college also commits to continuing its hard work and focus on all these issues to make sure that future generations have a clean, green, and energy efficient country to grow up in.

Principal Joanna Campbell said:

“To see the awards for our green efforts come piling in is truly gratifying and will embolden our entire college community to continue with the work that we’re doing.

“Green energy, skills, and training are fundamental to everything we do at Dumfries and Galloway College and we will continue to strive for excellence in this vital area.

“I would like to personally thank the College Development Network and the other organisations who have been involved in these awards as well as our hardworking students and staff who have made this remarkable success possible.”
