The School achieves a Green Impact Silver Award
8 July 2020
The School of Physics is proud to have achieved a Green Impact Silver Award for its work towards creating a greener and more sustainable working environment.
The NUS Green Impact scheme challenges University Schools and Departments to implement a number of actions, including energy saving, recycling, transport, wellbeing, and staff/student engagement, to help the environment.
The School’s Green Impact team, led by Josie Maskell, has made lots of changes to how we operate, including: buying fewer single use items, encouraging staff and students to use green methods to travel to campus and reminding everyone to turn off lights and shut off taps when not in use.
Awareness of environmental issues has been raised across the School as a result of our engagement with Green Impact and our newly formed sustainability group will be taking further action in the coming months to make progress on the School’s Climate Action Plan. If you have any suggestions or ideas for how the School can further improve its sustainability, please get in touch!
