The ‘Project’ element of Green Impact has been running for two years at Leeds, and aims to capture the creativity of staff and students to identify and action sustainability projects which are important to them!

If you have an idea which would improve the sustainability of the department/faculty/University, then let the Sustainability Service know!

How to complete a Project?

Firstly, if you have an idea, talk to your team and then discuss your idea with the Sustainability Intern.

If it sounds like a suitable project, you will complete a project proposal (template here), which will then be reviewed by the Sustainability Service. You will then get the go ahead or be asked to make any changes required.

Once your project has been approved, then you can start working on your project – which can be anything which works to improve the sustainability of the University and aligns to at least one of the Sustainability Service’s strategic themes!

You need to also complete the Bronze workbook or the Bronze lab workbook to ensure that the basic sustainability standard is being met.
