Tertiary Education

Green Impact has been delivering change and supporting volunteers to become sustainability innovators across campuses for over 10 years in the UK and 4+ years in Australasia. The example that our academic institutions set their students is fundamental to creating a sustainable future. To date, we have reached over 15 universities in Australasia and 60 universities in the UK who have used the model, we have gained experience in tailoring the approach to fit almost any kind of university.

A bespoke program for tertiary education has been prepared to support staff and students to take impactful actions towards sustainability. This goes far beyond the narrow, purely environmental definition of sustainability, helping embed sustainability into the curriculum, enhance the social fabric of institutions and improve the wellbeing of staff.

Health

Our bespoke program has supported over 50 health sector organisations in the UK to take impactful actions towards sustainability. Responding to national directives and local strategies, we have been able to tailor Green Impact to suit the needs of organisations’ clinical and operational environments.

We have worked with large NHS Trusts, the Royal College of GP’s, national networks of dentists and even developed healthcare modules for students to develop programs to suit their cultures and values.

Public Sector

A program is bespoke for every organisation to support staff and the public to take impactful actions towards sustainability. We have worked with local authorities and their communities, police and fire services and national funding councils to develop programs to suit their cultures and values.

Working within one organisation or across a whole region, Green Impact is enabling people on the ground to recognise opportunities for change across the whole sustainability agenda.

Business

In the UK we have worked with insurance companies, community sports facilities and the government funding councils to create bespoke Green Impact toolkits, and support their staff in taking tangible actions towards sustainability. Over a hundred off-campus organisations have used the strength of the student movement to enhance the social fabric of institutions and the wellbeing of staff.

We have worked with SME’s and large nationals to develop programs to suit their cultures and values. It doesn’t matter how big or small your organisation is, the Green Impact model is flexible enough to be tailored to your organisation’s needs.

Art & Culture

A program is bespoke for every organisation to support staff and the public to take impactful actions towards sustainability. Green Impact helps embed sustainability into policy and procedures, supporting staff to take actions in teams, enhancing the social fabric of institutions and the wellbeing of staff.

We work with national museums and community organisations to develop programs to suit their cultures and values, bringing the power of students into your organisation’s sustainability journey.
