Green Impact awards celebrate our sustainability achievements

On Monday 12th June we gathered at The Old Fire Station to celebrate the achievements of teams who have taken part in the 2016-17 cycle of Green Impact at the University of Salford.

Over 40 students were also involved with the programme, either as Project Assistants, supporting teams, or as auditors – checking the team’s evidence after they submit their toolkits. read more

Joule House or Green House?

Building on practices embedded in the 2014-15 Green Impact, colleagues in Joule House are taking further steps to create a big impact.
