Our sustainability and wellbeing programme at Swansea University has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2018 Edie Sustainability Leaders Awards, in the Engagement and Behaviour change category.
The Edie awards celebrate sustainability excellence and innovation and we are thrilled that Swansea University’s programme has been recognised for its positive impact and achievements at the university.
The programme, named SWell, uses an innovative online platform and app to motivate employees to take part in sustainability and wellbeing activities. Through team work, friendly competition and rewards for participating teams and individuals, these sustainable steps become embedded in the university culture.
Since its introduction at the university just over a year ago, the SWell programme has seen over 23,000 kg of CO2 saved from employees travelling sustainably, a 19% reduction in carbon intensity, over 105,000 miles travelled sustainably and over 45,000 positive actions logged.
We’re delighted the programme has been spotlighted for its success in reducing carbon emissions, saving energy and incentivise employees to take part in wellbeing initiatives and we look forward to the announcement of the winners at the awards ceremony dinner 24th January 2018.
