We are working to make our department greener, and reduce our impact on the environment.

What is green impact?

Green Impact is a national environmental accreditation and awards scheme run by the NUS which brings together staff and students to improve sustainability in their department, building or college across the University. 

The department will be measured across a variety of criteria from recycling,energy and travel to biodiversity and communication. In the academic year 2018/19 the department achieved a Gold Award. 

What do we do?

The team meets approximately every six weeks to generate ideas and update on our progress. We are currently developing an action plan and would like to hear from staff and students about  what you what you think could be done to improve sustainability within the department. So either drop us an email or come and speak to one of the team.

Find out more about our work (departmental intranet), and the different actions you can take to improve your environmental sustainability in the workplace.
