Sustainable UCL – Sustainable UCL

We are soon launching Green Impact 2021-22 and all departments and divisions are invited to get involved! Join our event to discover how this programme can bring departments and divisions together to improve environmental impact, save money, and boost employability.  

Break big changes down into simple steps

Green Impact helps by translating environmental goals into simple, bite-size actions. These are set out in an online workbook that makes this easy, more participatory and more fun. And UCL's Sustainability Team is on hand to provide help, every step of the way. 

Build on your successes

Last year, an incredible 44 teams took part in the programme, from engineering and languages, to the careers service and libraries. Teams ran some amazing projects; saving resources, carbon, money and energy. And this year, UCL is aiming for all departments and divisions to take part!

Engage students

Students are a vital part of Green Impact. When it comes to auditing departments at the end of the year, the Sustainability Team recruits students and provides them with IEMA-recognised training to help them do this. Throughout the year, you can work with a Student Sustainability Ambassador. Find out what kind of support ambassadors can provide here. You have until 15 October to apply via this form for a Departmental Sustainability Ambassador to help you complete your workbook. We will also discuss the Departmental Sustainability Ambassadors at the launch.

Find out more and get involved

Green Impact runs from September 2021 to May 2022. You can find out about the programme here, or just join us for the launch event! The meeting will be hosted on Microsoft Teams and you will receive a meeting link two days before the event.
