Submitted by on 2020/05/20 – 8:30 am

Congratulations, MacEwan University! On Earth Day, we received news that our institution was awarded the 2019 Leadership in Greener Purchasing Award – Education Sector from Grand & Toy as part of the annual Greener Purchasing Awards.

The award recognizes Grand & Toy’s customers as leaders in their sector for purchasing products with environmental attributes and ecolabels, thereby making a positive contribution to the environment.

“Sustainability is truly a collaborative effort and responsibility on campus and we are thrilled with the participation of groups across the campus to help MacEwan to be recognized in this manner,” says Kalen Pilkington, director of Sustainability. “MacEwan has collectively come together and won this award in a category where over 600 educational institutions were competing. This is a huge accomplishment that I would like to thank everyone across the institution for helping to make a reality.”
