King's receives Gold Award in Green Impact scheme


King's has received a Gold Award in the University's annual environmental accreditation scheme, Green Impact, for the second consecutive year. The scheme is designed to support and encourage departments and colleges across the University in reducing their environmental impacts. King's was one of 58 teams across the University to take part in the 2022 programme, and one of four colleges to receive the Gold Award. In delivering the award, the scheme co-ordinator commented:

Huge congratulations to you and your team. The effort and hard work that you all have put in over the past year is immediately evident, and the supporting evidence you have uploaded very clear. It is also impressive how you have engaged different members of the College and on so many different aspects of sustainability from waste, to biodiversity and sustainable food.
