The Library's Platinum Green Impact Award
We are pleased to announce that the Library was awarded a Platinum award at this year's UCL Green Impact Awards which took place earlier this month.
Green Impact is an annual programme that empowers staff and students to improve their departmental environmental performance, save money and improve the sustainability literacy of their peers and colleagues. This year we faced stiff competition from offices, labs and UCL's catering outlets. Richard Jackson, Director of Sustainability, emphasised "the essential role that Green Impact teams play in improving UCL's impacts", highlighting "the big energy, resource and financial savings made possible by action from the UCL community".
Our success builds on previous years when we achieved both bronze and silver awards. This year's trophies were made from slices of recycled wood from a tree felled in UCL's main quad. The tree had become dangerous due to damage from high winds.
