Free IEMA approved environmental audit training & experience

Boost your employability and sustainability literacy: receive training and conduct environmental audits on 19th or 20th March. 

Green Impact is a UCL-wide competition and accreditation scheme. It's all about staff and student teams working together to improve their department's environmental impact. And once this annual programme finishes, participating teams must be audited.  

This is where you come in. You don’t need any prior experience; student auditors will receive training approved by the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment in the mornings of 19th or 20th March (at Ramsay Hall). You'll then receive a certificate of participation.

After a free lunch, you'll audit UCL’s Green Impact teams in departments and divisions across the university.
