Green Impact logo

Why not get involved with the work that Nottingham Trent University is doing and gain skills to add onto your CV at the same time? The Green Impact scheme is asking for student help; throughout the year staff within your schools and departments take on the Green Impact workbooks to ensure that they are working as greenly as possible. What we need is your help auditing their work.

You will receive a morning of training and an afternoon to carry out the audit, your work is recognised not only by NTU but also the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment (IEMA)- something great to add to your CV. If you want to know more just take a look at the Green Impact page on Ecoweb or get in touch with NTU Environment Team.

NTU has acheived the Ecocampus Platinum Award

Here at Nottingham Trent University, our commitment to environmental sustainability is a key part of our strategy. Current and future threats to our environment are a major concern of our students and our staff. We seek to develop positive solutions for these environmental challenges through our curricula, our research, the way we work and how we manage our resources.
