About Green Impact

Green Impact is a United Nations award-winning programme designed to support environmentally and socially sustainable practice within organisations.

Green Impact can support you in achieving your organisation’s sustainability goals, by motivating and empowering employees and volunteers to act.

Our successful employee engagement model has been developed over fifteen years. Based on proven behaviour change models,  its flexible approach means it can be tailored to meet each organisation’s unique needs.

We have worked with over 2,000 organisations, from universities to hospitals, museums and councils.

Through a bespoke online toolkit and tailored support, Green Impact will:

  • Support you and your colleagues to envisage what sustainability looks like for your organisation
  • Engage employees and create a network of sustainability champions working towards shared goals
  • Set out a structured framework for ongoing improvements, to enable everyone to make a change and track their progress
  • Create lasting, positive organisational and cultural change
  • Encourage collaboration and team-building
  • Provide opportunities for knowledge and skill development

More than just a pledge scheme, Green Impact recognises tangible changes

Green Impact is not just tick-boxing: we collect evidence and feedback, and conduct supportive audits to ensure all changes are meaningful and impactful.

Every year participants receive awards to recognise their achievements, demonstrating how your teams respect people and planet.

The programme is constantly growing, so year on year people can achieve more and more on their journey towards sustainability.

More than 50,000 people have taken nearly 600,000 actions

Students and education are at the heart of what we do

Our vision is that, through sustainability initiatives, alongside the content of the taught curriculum, students will graduate equipped to deal with the global challenges we currently face. We do this by ensuring that every programme we run provides training, support and recognition for students as either volunteers or through paid roles.

We also recognise the importance of lifelong learning, and understand that everyone can be a sustainability student when they undertake workplace learning for sustainability.

Our work supporting students’ development adds value to Green Impact, as well as adding social value to your supply chain.
