The University of Cagliari's active commitment to sustainability has also resulted in participation in national events and the awarding of mentions and prizes for its work.


An article in the European Commission's magazine GPP Issue, No. 107 September 202, was dedicated to the contract for plastic-free vending machines as an example of good practice adopted by a public administration in the field of sustainability and environmental education.


The contract for the purchase of interior furnishings for the University's crèche, which was nominated for the 2021 edition of the Procura+ ICLEI Prize, the network of European public authorities and regions on sustainable procurement, was among the finalist projects in the 'Procurement of the Year' category as a sustainable and innovative action to support women in academia. 

The other participating public authorities in the category were the City of Helsinki, the Province of Zeeland (The Netherlands), and the City of Copenhagen.
