Green Gown Awards Finalist for University of Greenwich and LUPC partnership

LUPC is delighted to be a 2019 Finalist in the Green Gown Awards in partnership with The University of Greenwich. The Green Gown Awards represent over 1 million students and 162,000 staff leading the way with their commitment to the global sustainability agenda and proving the value that universities and colleges bring to the economy and society. The Finalists emphasise an institution’s role in enabling and empowering young people to tackle pressing global issues to ensure they have a better tomorrow.

The University of Greenwich- LUPC partnership has been shortlisted in the research with impact institution category for their EQUIANO – human rights risk assessment tool. The engagement tool is designed to gather information to help identify the risk of human rights abuses in public supply chains. It was developed under the supervision of the Business, Human Rights and the Environment Research Group (BHRE) at the University of Greenwich as a response to the increasing pressure on public authorities to purchase goods and services responsibly.

The Awards Ceremony takes place at the Glasgow Science Centre on the 26th November 2019 and we are hoping to be successful!
