SRN Award of excellence

SRN Award of excellence

Nominations for the 2016 award open mid-October

The Sustainability Representative Network (SRN) Award of Excellence was initiated in 2013 and is designed to recognise and reward the efforts of an outstanding SRN Member (professional and academic) who has endeavoured to make a positive difference towards sustainability at Macquarie.

SRN members are encouraged to nominate themselves or another individual on the network that deserves recognition for continued and on-going effort to improve sustainability performance.* Non-SRN members can also nominate an SRN member from within their Department/Faculty.

The achievements may encompass:

  • Leadership in commencing and delivering new sustainability initiatives
  • Communicating and raising awareness to promote sustainability
  • Championing behaviour change by walking the talk
  • Embedding sustainability into learning and teaching
  • Actively facilitating sustainability programs and initiatives coordinated by Macquarie Sustainability

Each year, the winners are decided by an independent panel of judges and announced in December. Prizes are awarded for the winning nominations and highly commended. 

Please note: SRN members who have previously received the Award of Excellence as a Winner are not eligible to be in the running in consecutive years to receive the same Award (i.e. 2015 winners are not eligible in 2016).
