Green Impact Auditor Opportunities 

Green Impact - Audits Wednesday 24th April 2020

  • Want to find out more about environmental issues?
  • Want to gain the skills and knowledge associated with auditing?
  • Want to make a positive impact?
  • Want to improve your CV and gain valuable employability skills?
  • Want to do a course that is IEMA[1] approved?
  • Want to have a fun day learning practical skills?

Green Impact is an environmental accreditation programme with an awards element, designed to encourage, support and celebrate departments in making environmental improvements. Over the last few months teams have been working through their workbooks implementing practical actions, such as only using recycled copier paper, or putting awareness stickers next to light switches.

Depending on the number of environmental actions departments complete, they can achieve either: a working towards accreditation, Bronze, Silver or Gold. All departments participating in Green Impact will need an audit to verify their level of achievement… and this is where you come in!

Bicycle User Group - BUG

The Bicycle User Group has around 40 members across our Campuses. We aim to contribute to the University’s cycle infrastructure plans and run events to encourage others to join us. If you have any questions or would like to join us just email Green Chester.

Sustainability Forum

The Sustainability Unit hosts a monthly Sustainability Forum where local guest speakers share what they’re doing in the local community and how you can do more. Last year we had Steve Hughes talk about the SuperTrees project which you can see taking shape at the roundabout near Mecca Bingo, at the top of Frodsham Street. Keep an eye on the Events page for more details.
