Green Rewards

Staff and students are making a big impact through the NTU Green Rewards programme by sharing their green actions and taking part in more sustainable and wellbeing behaviours. Through an easy to use, free app, you can log your actions, take part in monthly challenges and earn points to win prizes.

 

Over 3,491 staff and students at NTU have taken part in Green Rewards, racking up an impressive 205,243 sustainability actions which have collectively resulted in nearly 413,425.94 kg of avoided carbon emissions.

NTU Green Rewards is a joint venture between NTU and our students' union, NTSU. Through the platform, NTU staff and students are able to track their positive actions across six key themes ranging from reducing food waste to more sustainable travel options to reducing your personal carbon footprint. Green Rewards is a collaboration between NTU and NTSU.

Helping you make a positive impact on a global scale

Each activity theme also aligns with one of the United Nations’ Sustainability Development Goals (SDG’s), allowing participants to understand their positive impact on a global scale as well as at an individual and University level. For example, employees are rewarded for using reusable bottles and reusable cups instead of single use plastics, contributing to SDG12 – Responsible Consumption and Production.
