About Our University
The Green Impact scheme, is a behavioural change programme run by the NUS, promoting sustainability in over 180 organisations worldwide involving almost 30,000 people. Through Green Impact, staff are brought together to play an active role in making their workplace 'greener'.
Teams from across the University take actions to implement changes which will decrease their environmental impact; with an opportunity to achieve awards at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. Teams are provided with bespoke toolkits to promote change including; safe walking routes, ensuring procurement of goods and services is ethical and brainstorming about the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals as a team. In 2019, the toolkits will include Projects, giving teams the chance to focus on improving an issue of their choice.
