We are 'greening up' our department by reducing our impact on the environment.
What is Green Impact?
Green Impact is a national environmental accreditation and awards scheme run by the NUS which brings together staff and students to improve sustainability in their department, building or college across the University.
In July 2022, the department was awarded a Green Impact Bronze award, and the Business Administration Unit, Mills and Macaulay groups each received the LEAF Bronze awards.
The NDS Green Impact Committee
The NDS Green Impact Committee was set up in 2016 with the purpose of reducing the environmental impact of the department through sharing and implementing ideas and strategies relating to the environment and sustainability.
The committee is taking part in the University’s Green Impact Initiative and we are currently working towards attaining a Silver Award. The award scheme runs from May to April the following year when the work we have done will be assessed by a student auditor and the decision made whether we qualify for the award. It involves us meeting certain criteria across different areas including travel, recycling and energy and completing an online workbook of progress. Once we have achieved Silver, we can start working towards Gold.
If anyone is interested in joining the NDS Green Impact Committee or becoming involved in some of our activities we’d be delighted to have you.
