Greening the SSL

The Social Science Library has a commitment to environmental sustainability. Taking part in Green Impact has enabled us to identify our main environmental impacts and take steps to reduce them.

Green Impact is an environmental accreditation and awards scheme run by the National Union of Students and coordinated here by the University’s Environmental Sustainability Team.  In 2015 we received the Bronze Award and the Best Newcomer Award, and in 2016 we achieved the Gold Award and the Staff Award.

We are continually looking for ways to reduce our environmental impacts so please contact a member of the SSL Green Team if you have any suggestions for how we can save energy and reduce waste.
