Green Impact

The second year of this very successful initiative was launched on Monday 3 October 2011, when an email with the link to register on the extended online workbook was sent out to all the teams. Click here for a summary of progress so far.

The Green Impact initiative is supported by Kevin Edge, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor, who comments: Concepts such as sustainability and behavioural change are important to our everyday lives, both in society in general and within this University. This exciting project is another step in engaging staff to undertake the appropriate actions.

This year there is a new Gold section to the workbook, which contains over 80 criteria that will enable teams to improve departmental practices with a more in-depth and wide-ranging impact. The criteria include reducing water consumption and energy efficiency of appliances, business miles of staff, clothing suppliers and biodiversity considerations. The Gold category award will be achieved by attaining a certain number of points, rather than compliance with all criteria, so allowing departments to select aspects of particular concern/interest to them.

Students are being actively encouraged to take part in Green Impact this year. They are involved in their departmental teams, the GI Leadership group, maintaining Facebook and Twitter, promoting environmental issues around the campus, Global Future 2012 and possibly developing a Green Clinic idea.

A wiki space has been set up so that the teams have an opportunity to share good practice and ideas generally. This year, the wiki is the main communication channel for participants in Green Impact and includes a Twitter feed.
