Green Impact

About Green Impact

Green Impact is a University-wide champion network which facilitates departments across the University to take action on sustainability. Staff members work through a bespoke online toolkit which is audited and marked by student volunteers.

Benefits of joining the network include, an increased awareness of sustainability issues, learning how to make positive sustainable change in the workplace and home, meeting other like-minded staff members and taking an active role in supporting the University's Sustainability objectives.

Kingston University ran its Green Impact scheme between 2011 and 2015 and recently relaunched the network in 2021. Here are some highlights from our 2021 campaign:

  • 15 active teams took part in the 2021 Green Impact Programme, with 8 teams being audited and receiving awards.
  • Approximately 348 colleagues across the University were engaged in the Green Impact Programme.
  • Our Green Impact Champions completed 293 actions, of which 175 were reported as done only because of Green Impact.
  • 14 student auditors gained new skills through training and auditing opportunities.
  • The University saved an estimated 32,728kg CO2 and £6,379, based on analysis from just 10 actions.
