UCL’s School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) has earned the Bronze Award in the Green Impact scheme. This award signifies their commitment to environmental sustainability and supports UCL’s broader green initiatives.


The School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) at UCL has been awarded the Bronze Award within the University's Green Impact scheme 


The Green Impact scheme is a sustainability program created and monitored by UCL to encourage departments and organizations to adopt and implement environmentally friendly practices. Participants complete a range of sustainability actions across various areas such as waste management and energy efficiency. Each action earns points, and the cumulative total determines the level of award achieved, from Bronze to Gold.

SSEES has demonstrated a strong dedication to environmental stewardship by engaging in these practices and completing the required sustainability actions to earn the Bronze Award. This achievement reflects their proactive approach to improving their environmental impact and aligns with UCL’s broader sustainability goals. 

By achieving the Bronze Award, SSEES not only supports UCL’s commitment to reducing its carbon footprint but also inspires other departments to participate in the Green Impact scheme. This recognition highlights the importance of collective efforts in fostering a sustainable future and showcases the positive impact of individual and departmental contributions to environmental conservation.
