Bond University’s Mirvac School of Sustainable Development building was once again recognised for its outstanding sustainable design, winning the United Nations Association of Australia (UNAA) World Environment Day Szencorp Green Building Award.
This is the latest in an impressive list of national and international awards for the University’s building, including the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Global Sustainability Award in 2005.
Bond University’s Emeritus Professor Tor Hundloe, ‘an environmental pioneer’ also won the individual award for Outstanding Service to the Environment for his contribution to eco-management and environmental science education.
Professor Robert Stable said these awards were another example of the world benchmark Bond is setting to deliver a superior experience for students.
"Bond University is honoured to have won these prestigious green awards. Last year winning the RICS award put Bond University on the world stage as a leader in the field of sustainability. Now this World Environment Day Szencorp Green Building Award and Professor Hundloe’s individual award confirms our position as Australia’s educational leaders in sustainable building design,” said Professor Stable.
“We are very proud of the Mirvac School of Sustainable Development building. It has innovatively reduced carbon emissions by 80 per cent and is Australia's first higher education building to receive a 6 Star Green Star Design Rating,” he said.
