Green Impact makes a big impression

Green Impact – the behaviour change programme that aims to create green teams within the University – got off to a great start with more than 20 teams signing up in the first week.

"We were really pleased with the number of people visiting the Green Impact stall and volunteering to join the scheme during the launch week," says James Dixon-Gough, the University's Sustainability Officer.

"We signed up an extra 10 teams during the week, making a total of 23, and we have another four or five teams due to register.  Over 80 people pledged to reduce their environmental impact at the University and 30 students signed up to be auditors.  All in all, the launch was a great success and shows that people are keen to take action and make their working environment greener and more sustainable."

People registering on the scheme were asked to 'make their mark' and show their commitment by putting their hand and finger prints on a Green Impact banner.  The banner will be displayed on the website, where you can also find further information about the scheme.
