In April LUU was named gold award winner at the National Union of Students (NUS) Green Impact Awards in Manchester.
The awards recognise the environmental work of students’ unions around the country and this year had a record 105 unions competing for the awards. The awards are part of the NUS Green Impact initiative which provides environmental accreditation for students’ unions, helping unions to showcase great environmental practice.
Dannie Grufferty, NUS Vice-President (Society and Citizenship), said:
“The quality of the entrants into this year’s awards was exceptional and all the winners should be very proud of themselves. They’ve set a great example for those around them and have made a real progress for environmental sustainability.
“Students unions have often long been at the forefront of environmental campaigning and since 2005 NUS Green Impact has been helping students’ unions to green themselves, their universities and their communities.”
