Green Impact Silver Award
Press release issued: 10 July 2020
The School of Chemistry Admin Team has been awarded the Silver Award by the Green Impact scheme.
Well done to Rebecca Layland who put a huge amount of work and effort into enabling us to achieve the award, including recording our progress, writing our new sustainability newsletter, and completing the virtual audit on behalf of the team, in order to attain the award. Well done also to the many staff and students who engaged in the Green Impact scheme, and who carried out actions to improve their own, and consequentially, the team's level of sustainability.
Please let the admin team know if you would like to contribute to the sustainability newsletter; contributions are very welcome. The Green Impact scheme challenges teams to implement easy actions within their departments to improve sustainability and help the environment. These actions can include energy saving, recycling, transport, wellbeing, and staff & student engagement. The more actions completed, the more points the department will accumulate, and these points lead to different awards.
If you are interested in learning about how you can get involved in the scheme, then please go to the Green Impact webpage. Next year we would love to extend our activities throughout the School in the hope of attaining a Gold Award!
The Green Impact award ceremony can be watched here - our award is presented by Martin Wiles, the University of Bristol's Head of Sustainability, who set up the Green Impact scheme around 10 years ago.
