Staff from across NTU joined the Environment Team to celebrate another year of Green Impact success at their annual awards ceremony.

Staff from across NTU joined the Environment Team to celebrate another year of Green Impact success. This year a record number of teams took part and 20 teams received awards at a ceremony in the Old Library.

The Vice Chancellor, Edward Peck, and Simon Tilley from the Hockerton Housing Project handed out the awards, ranging from bronze to gold to the teams. NTU's Estates and Resources team went one step further to receive a Green Impact Excellence award, having achieved gold status last year.

What is Green Impact?

Green Impact is a national project set up by the National Union of Students to get university staff working together to 'green' their departments. Teams are asked to complete a series of tasks to make their workplaces more sustainable, with tasks ranging from ensuring all unnecessary electrical equipment is switched off to volunteering for environmental projects and charities. This year four teams completed enough tasks to receive the coveted gold award.

Two special awards were also given out to those who went the extra mile to promote the Green Impact message. The 'Environmental Hero' award went to Clare Adams from the Rosalind Franklin for her fundraising work and the Dryden Green Team won the 'Innovation and Engagement' award for their Green Day held in the Dryden building.
