Green Impact Students' Unions is the flagship sustainability accreditation scheme and campaign by the National Union of Students, helping students' unions to green their campus, curriculum and community. Students' unions have been at the forefront of social and environmental campaigning. Green Impact provides a practical framework (achievable, measurable actions in an online workbook format) for greening students' unions, covering things like collaboration, campaigning and actions to improve how goods and services are ordered, biodiversity, and much more.
With over 100 students' unions taking part and being rewarded with an ‘Excellent, Very Good, and Good' award each year at NUS Awards, Green Impact is a great way to drive sustainability through your students' union.
In 2016/2017 the Union of Kingston Students achieved ‘Very Good' accreditation in Green Impact making it among the top 25 students' unions in the country. The next step is to achieve an ‘Excellent' rating!
