Our Green Impact
We think it’s important to consider the impact we make on our environment. It's our legal and ethical responsibility. We work hard to make sure you have a clean and green place to study and relax in.
Find out more about our Green Impact and how you can get involved in making sure your Students' Union is sustainable.
Environmental Aspects and Impacts
KCLSU, as with all organisations, needs to be aware of its environmental aspects and impacts Everything we do, from office administration at a desk in front of a computer to our trading in the bars has an impact on the environment. We've developed a smart plan to enable us to be more sustainable. Each year we take part in a number of projects, big and small, in an attempt to reduce our impact on the environment.
Green Impact Award
Last year we received Very Good at the NUS Green Impact Awards. This achievement recognises our extensive efforts to become more sustainable. NUS Green Impact aims to reduce the negative environmental impact of KCLSU’s activities. We hope to continue to improve our performance and take care of our surroundings. It also helps energy costs, which leaves more money for students. So we all win!
We’re big fans of recycling. All bins within KCLSU are clearly marked for recyclable goods or residual waste.
Got some empty batteries or printer toner and ink cartridges? We provide facilities for recycling these at our KCLSU Hubs.
KCLSU Sustainability Champions and Sustainability Week
KCLSU staff take part in Kings Sustainability Champions scheme. Last year we received Bronze and this year we are aiming for Silver. This year we promoted sustainability to staff through our weekly communication The Insider and created our own Green Brand - The Green Corner.
