Australasian Campuses Towards Sustainability (ACTS) announced the winners and highly commended of the 2012 Green Gown Awards Australasia, and the 2012 ACTS Award of Excellence.

The Green Gown Awards Australasia is the first and only Award scheme dedicated to recognising excellence in sustainability within the tertiary education sector in Australia and New Zealand. Their aim is to recognise and reward those institutions making a positive impact towards sustainability, providing a real and very positive platform for others to aspire to.

Now in their third year, the Awards were founded in the UK to recognise sustainability excellence and this year drew winners in 7 categories, with over 40 institutions involved. Organisers were delighted with this overwhelming response from more than 20% of the Australasian tertiary education sector.
