ARUgreen Staff Competition

Our competition aims to engage all staff in environmental issues at ARU. Teams are defined by your faculty/service and points are won by taking part in our monthly competitions, the more staff that take part the more points to be won.

Each faculty/service has Green Guru’s who act as champions and help us with promoting our competitions and encouraging their colleagues to get involved.

At the end of year academic year we crown the winning team and they host the ARUgreen trophy plant for the year. Our monthly competitions also offer larger team prizes as well as individual prizes to encourage participation.
