Gold for University of Sheffield Students’ Union at eco awards night

The University of Sheffield Students’ Union has achieved the highest possible gold standard in the Green Impact Students’ Union Programme, a national competition to find the country’s top green campuses.

Increasing recycling rates, promoting ethical trade in its shops, bars and eating places, and working with the university to develop initiatives such as the Bring It Don’t Bin It campaign - which collects unwanted items from students leaving their houses at the end of term - all helped the union to victory.
