Professor Adisa Azapagic receives a Making a Difference Award!
Professor Adisa Azapagic and her Sustainable Industrial Systems research group have received an award for Outstanding Benefit to Society through Research. This 'Making a Difference Award for Social Responsibility' was presented by Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell.
These University awards aim to recognise the outstanding achievements of staff, students, and alumni, while also celebrating the ways in which they make a difference. This was the first award of its kind to ever be awarded.
The group received the award for their work with CCaLC; a free, easy-to-use carbon footprinting tool aimed at industry. It has made a real difference in helping companies cut greenhouse emissions and achieve significant environmental improvements from ‘cradle to grave’. CCaLC has also been used successfully for engagement along supply chains, raising awareness and disseminating best practice for carbon reductions.
By being freely available and developed for use by non-experts, CCaLC has helped to remove some of the major barriers to the uptake of carbon footprinting in industry and contributed towards the greening of supply chains.
