About Green Impact

Green Impact Status is an environmental accreditation scheme in which University areas are given ‘Bronze’, 'Silver’ or ‘Gold’ awards depending on the number of environmental actions carried out. The scheme is currently delivered and supported by the National Union of Students Students (NUS).

Queen's University is committed to improving its environmental performance, and is working towards achieving a 21% reduction in carbon emissions by 2020. Fifty per cent of Queen's carbon emissions are under the direct control of the end user. Staff and students have a key role to play in helping the University achieve its target. To ensure we play our part there are a number of teams participating in the Green Impact Scheme. 

Green Impact is an environmental accreditation and awards scheme, bringing staff and students together with their wider communities to enable and showcase positive changes in environmental practice.

By taking part in the Green Impact Programme, the team is working towards achieving a reduction in waste, an increase in energy efficiency, an increase in sustainable procurement and an increase in sustainable transport.

To help our team reach their goals there are a number of things you can do so please get in touch and participate in our upcoming events.
