About the scheme

The University of Bristol Green Impact Awards offer a practical way of helping staff and students to become greener, whilst celebrating the small steps that individuals are taking to reduce our collective environmental impacts. Green Impact challenges you to implement a number of easy practical actions that will help the environment. The more actions completed the more points are scored, leading to a Bronze, Bronze Plus, Silver, Gold or Platinum Award.

Aims and outcomes

Green Impact aims to empower individuals and teams to reduce their environmental impact by encouraging, rewarding and celebrating practical environmental improvements.

Who can get involved?

Any staff or student from across the University can participate. There are different schemes to suit different groups (see key schemes). Teams can be of any size, from any location or function. The schemes are not aimed at any one type of post-holder – any member of staff or student can lead on behalf of their department or residence, and the more people you can get on board, the easier it will be, you also get extra points for getting people involved.
