Green Impact is an environmental accreditation and awards scheme that brings staff and students together to enable and showcase positive changes in environmental practice.
The scheme provides a framework to channel general enthusiasm for sustainability into concrete and measurable action.
By implementing simple, tangible, positive steps that can make a real difference, the programme allows staff and students to have a genuine impact on the environmentally-friendly practice and sustainable behaviour of their university as a whole.
Teams of staff are given access to an online workbook with Bronze, Silver and Bonus award criteria to complete and work towards.
The programme has been running at the University of Birmingham since 2009.
