Some of our Green Impact Award winners

Staff from across the University gathered at Wivenhoe House on Tuesday 10 July  for our annual Green Impact Awards ceremony.  The awards recognise the achievements of staff who have been completing sustainable actions throughout the academic year. Hosted by Daisy Malt from the Sustainability and Grounds Section, the event brought together our Green Impact network and highlighted just how many people are already working hard to lower the impacts their departments are having on the environment.

“It’s always such a pleasure to recognise everyone’s hard work on Green Impact. The community is going from strength to strength and everyone’s effort makes such an important contribution to the University’s sustainability targets,” Daisy said.

Guest speaker, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Jules Pretty, discussed the importance of addressing single use plastic and the University’s current vision for cutting its use and this year we also welcomed contractors Rose Builders to our Green Impact family, for completing a set of specific criteria focused on the environmental commitments of their organisation.

Also speaking was Zoe Arnold, project officer from the National Union of Students, who was able to give an update on our place in the wider Green Impact community, which is made up of 290 organisations in the UK and Europe, ranging from students’ unions to NHS Trusts.
