Annual Congress 2017

Barema & AAGBI Environment Award 2018


Applications for the 2018 Barema and AAGBI environment award have now closed.



In 2014, the AAGBI linked with Barema, the Association for Anaesthetic and Respiratory Device Suppliers to establish the Barema & AAGBI Environment award. This award recognises excellence in sustainability within the specialty and industry partners to champion a greener anaesthesia agenda.

The Barema & AAGBI Environment Award is an annual award for the single best initiative or project and consists of a £200 prize and a grant of £800 for support and development of the initiative or project. A short report is required detailing how the grant is spent and the impact it has made. Highly commended certificates may be awarded to applicants at the discretion of the judging panel.

Applications and criteria 2018

Applicants must demonstrate how their activity, project, campaign or other work (including original research), related to anaesthesia, intensive care or pain management, has had (and will continue to have) a measurable beneficial effect on the environment. Applications should include details of educational activities that have been carried out as part of the project, and how other key stakeholders have or will be involved to gain optimum benefit from the initiative.  

In assessing proposals, consideration will also be given to the following criteria (these are not weighted):

  1. Relevance: is what is proposed a distinctive contribution of the specialty to environmental sustainability in healthcare?
  2. Innovation: is what is proposed new or distinctive?
  3. Sustainability: can what is proposed be embedded in mainstream practice?
  4. Replicability: can what is proposed be delivered or adapted in other locations or settings?
  5. Scaleability: can what is proposed be delivered on a larger scale?
  6. Strategic priorities: does the proposal align with AAGBI's strategic priorities?
