A COLLEGE has been commended for its commitment to the environment.
New College Stamford was recognised at the Green Gown Awards on Thursday last week.
The awards were established by the Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges to find the UK’s most sustainable institutions.
The college received a highly commended award for its action to minimise its environmental impact.
Environmental officer at the college, Emma Ayers, said: “The environment team works with students, staff and the wider community delivering a range of environmental and social awareness projects to influence positive student behaviour as an integral part of their experience at New College Stamford.
“Our recent Ofsted inspection demonstrates the importance attached to this ethos.”
