Congratulations to the Department for gaining an NUS Green Impact Bronze Award. The Department's Green Team, led by Jennie McKenzie, the Departmental Administrator, picked up the award at the University's first ceremony for Green Impact.

This award is in recognition for our achievements in a number of areas, including promoting recycling methods, travel and cycling schemes and encouraging staff to reduce their energy usage.

The University signed up to Green Impact last year - an environmental accreditation and award scheme which helps departments improve their working environments for all, whilst gaining recognition for their efforts.  During this first successful year, 199 members of staff have formed 23 departmental teams across the University. These teams help deliver a range of sustainable initiatives - impacting over 5000 members of staff.
