gold award

The winners! The Global Lounge team - L-R: Kiara Cantamessa, Nicole Hawker, Beatrice Loh, Hannah Cameron, Bethany Keats, Lorna Hempstead and Noble Paul.

Staff from the Global Lounge (Building 8) on the Townsville campus have been awarded a GOLD Sustainable Office rating in the recently launched Sustainable Office Accreditation program run by TropEco. The team from the Division of Global Strategy and Engagement are the first office to apply for a rating under the program and are now putting out the challenge for other offices to get involved.

The voluntary program is designed to help empower staff to embed sustainable practices in their workplace. It is very flexible and easy to implement with four tiers of accreditation - Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum.

It’s easy to get involved and TropEco staff will help you through the process. Just put a team together from your Office, College, Research Centre or building and you can get started.
