NUS Green Impact Award 20-21

We're delighted to share that we have been successfully awarded 'Excellent' accreditation in the NUS Green Impact Award scheme!


In August 2020, the Union signed up to the Green Impact accreditation scheme for a second year, hoping to better our previous rank of 'Good' that we were awarded for our 19-20 submission. We're hugely proud to announce that we managed to exceed our own expectations and reached the accreditation 'Excellent'.

We hope to maintain this standard this year and have once again signed up to see if we can push ourselves to be even more eco-responsible at LAU. A huge thank you to Kaya Mitchell and to all the students who have helped us to achieve this!


"Green Impact is a United Nations award-winning programme designed to support environmentally and socially sustainable practice within organisations.


This year Green Impact has engaged students and staff in sustainability through campaigns such as the Climate Emergency, Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) and waste reduction across campuses. SUs have also shown how they quickly responded to the changes in working and living due to COVID-19, continuing to engage and support students and the local community through sustainability initiatives."
