Green Impact

Green Impact is how we at the Guild measure ourselves in terms of our Environmental impact. This NUS programme allows us to benchmark ourselves across other unions and continually develop our understanding of environmental issues and how we can affect change.

To find out what we’ve done in relation to these environmental issues, please read on.

What we’ve done

In the past the Guild has made many significant changes towards becoming more environmentally friendly and sustainable.

These include:

  • Installing solar panels on Tennis Courts accommodation.
  • Increased energy efficiency in the Guild through loft insulation and sealing off external windows.
  • Monitoring our electrical consumption – we have saved 5% each year since 2013.
  • Looking at ways to reduce plastic use – such as getting rid of plastic drinking straws from Joe’s bar.

And many more!

Our current Green Impact ranking is Excellent, but we’ll continue to make progress each year to maintain our accreditation and ensure we’re doing all we can to work towards a greener, more sustainable future.
