Get involved in Green Impact to gain and develop project management, teamwork and auditing skills! Benefit your CV as well as your University.

Green Impact is a scheme developed by SOS-UK (Students Organising for Sustainability) bringing staff and students together to enable and showcase positive changes in environmental practice. The scheme audits and awards departments and colleges based on their sustainability performance, and encourages direct action in the workplace.

Students at the University of Cambridge are encouraged to get involved in Green Impact. Your department or College may already have a Green Impact team, or you could start one up yourself. More practical information about the programme can be found here

Green Impact Auditors

The departments and colleges which take part in Green Impact are all audited by a team of students at the end of the academic year to verify what they have done and confirm their award. As a Green Impact auditor, we offer you a half day’s training session followed by half a day of practical auditing experience as you visit departments to find out about and confirm their sustainability achievements. A Green Impact Auditor role description is available giving full details on what the role involves. The training and auditing sessions usually take place in early May. Contact to register your interest.

"The auditing has been a great way for me to gain both training and practical environmental auditing experience.  Also I got to visit parts of the University that I may never otherwise see!" - Green Impact auditor, 2017
