As a not-for-profit initiative, we seek sponsorship funds to secure the long term future of the Awards. We invite organisations to provide financial support to develop the Green Gown Awards in return for sharing their sustainability knowledge and brand exposure.
NERC - the Natural Environment Research Council - is the leading funder of independent research, training and innovation in environmental science in the UK.
We invest public money in world-leading science, designed to help us sustain and benefit from our natural resources, predict and respond to natural hazards and understand environmental change. We work closely with policymakers and industry to make sure our knowledge can support sustainable economic growth and wellbeing in the UK and around the world.
We are supported mainly by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS), but our activities and funding decisions are independent of government.
