Green Impact

Green Impact

Green Impact is a UCL-wide environmental competition and accreditation scheme that allows departments and divisions across the UCL to improve their environmental impact, support UCL's Sustainability Strategy and engage peers and colleagues with these essential issues.

I'm a member of staff: how can I take part?

save money

Teams sign up to take part in Green Impact; they may be composed of members from a department or floor of a building. Last year 47 UCL departmental teams took part in the competition. And this year, we're working to make this number even higher. 

Participants take part in Green Impact by completing an online workbook of criteria. Criteria are split into different categories, depending the primary activities of the team. Teams can select criteria from multiple categories in the workbook. 

At the end of the year, this online workbook is submitted and the teams are audited by UCL students or staff. Teams that have accumulated enough points will be rewarded with nationally-recognised accreditations at our Green Impact award ceremony.

I'm a student: how can I take part?

Ask your supervisor, Departmental Administrator or Head of Department whether they’re taking part in Green Impact. If they're not, encourage them to do so; Green Impact is an essential way to improve your department's environmental impact. If they are taking part, you can work alongside them to improve the impact of your department. We can even give you training to help you take part; it’ll improve your department’s environmental performance and look great on your CV.
