Here are the remarks from a panel of judges to Gifu University: "Gifu University's environmental report explains that under the president strong leadership, the university is making a sincere effort to realize Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. Its environment-related information is quite exhaustive, yet easy to understand. It also shows a strong consistency between the university's policies and actions. Notably, we were very impressed to know that even one inspection by the university staff is made to drive forth the university's environment protection efforts. Gifu University makes a fresh start as the "Tokai National Higher Education and Research System, Gifu University" with Nagoya University in April 2020. We sincerely hope that the university continues to promote and expand student-driven activities and information disclosure."

Gifu University stays committed to communicating its various conservation programs/projects to the public with the wining of the Environmental Communication Awards 2019 as a great momentum.
