Green Impact at Land Economy Overview

The University of Cambridge is a leading centre for environmental research, driving environmental policy and agenda around the world. 

The Green Impact Scheme is the University of Cambridge's environmental accreditation scheme. It helps support and encourage departments and colleges across the University to reduce their environmental impact and create more environmentally sustainable workplaces. The Green Impact team at the Department of Land Economy is dedicated to improving environmental sustainability and biodiversity at our building in Silver Street.

We have also been recognised for our Green achievements in the University's 2019-2020 Annual Environmental Sustainability Report, which provides details of the University's successes in sustainability, the lessons learned and the plans for the forthcoming year. 

Check us out on Page 24 "Sprucing up Silver Street"

To find out more about the sustainability initiatives at the University why not sign-up to the Greenlines mailing list or join one of the various Sustainabilty Yammer discussion groups at CU Sustainability

Discover our plans for improving our environmental sustainability and biodiversity, led by the Green Impact team and implemented by everyone.  Unfortunately due to the ongoing COVID lockdown the department is still closed, so there are currently no updates via the Green Impact notice board, the screen in Reception, as well posters in the lobby and around the Department.

However, this website will be regularly updated.

The Green Impact Team at Land Economy includes:  Lynda Haines (LE Green Impact Lead), Daryl Cavill, Tong Xu and Yulim Kim.

If you would like to join the team or have any ideas on energy saving, waste reduction, reuse and recycling, sustainable purchasing, improving biodiversity or more? We would like to hear from you! Just email Lynda Haines.
