The latest results of the Green Impact are in! As always, big congratulations to all teams involved - we have a record number of teams taking part and nearly 600 actions taken as a result of the programme so far.

There's plenty of time to make changes in your department before the March 7th deadline, so there's still everything to play for. 

And remember: the team that ticks off the most actions between Monday 10th and Friday 14th February will win a Fairtrade hamper. Good luck!
