Liverpool John Moores University has been awarded a Urenco Award for Sustainability at the North of England Excellence Awards 2011 - the North's most prestigious awards.
The LJMU Infrastructure Services Department was one of two winners in this category, and special citation was given in relation to the University achieving 40% of the overall Carbon Management target in the first year of a five year plan.
Professor Nigel Weatherill, LJMU Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive said:
"This is a very pleasing outcome. As a University we have a huge commitment to carbon management through an initial five-year plan. This award reflects that commitment and the immense efforts of the team behind the carbon management programme."
David Teale, Chief Executive of North of England Excellence, said:
"Our finalists demonstrate the strength of business practice across the North. These awards quite rightly highlight and celebrate the success of businesses committed to continual improvement and innovation, with management and staff at all levels working together to deliver outstanding results."
