On 2nd June, the Alison Richard Building Green Team was presented with the NUS Green Impact Gold Award, in recognition of the work it has done to make the building and the departments working within it more environmentally sustainable. To achieve an award, teams must provide evidence of changes to policy, procedures and attitudes within the department or College. The ARB Green Team was one of only 16 teams to attain Gold. Some of the ARB achievements include installing PIR lights to save electricity, improving biodiversity by putting up a nestbox, monitoring duplex printing and encouraging greener travel with our Sports Relief bike challenge. POLIS was also recognised for a Special Award, as joint Runner-Up in the Environmental Improvement Award category for creating a new online admissions database, saving 6 000 sheets of paper each year.
