Green impact

Green Impact is a sustainability program designed for staff and students to make a difference by acting more sustainably and reducing their carbon footprint. It's a simple and effective way to make positive environmental changes, whilst connecting and collaborating with other staff and students across the University. Given our university-wide goal to achieve below zero emissions (become carbon negative) by 2030, it's important for all of us to play our part.
