How to use the toolkit
Submitting and auditing your toolkit
After the Green Impact program closes in October, you are no longer able to log actions or upload evidence to the toolkit, meaning any actions you complete after this date will not gain points towards your final score.
Don’t worry though — once the toolkit closing date is announced, you will be given plenty of notice and support to complete as many actions as possible before the deadline.
How to submit:
- Work with your team to log actions and submit your toolkit online before the deadline.
- The Sustainability Team with the help of volunteer Student Auditors will review your toolkit to check all appropriate evidence has been uploaded. We will let you know what day this is being completed as some members of your team will need to be available.
- You will have 2–3 days to resubmit any missing evidence to improve your score, based on the advice of Student Auditors.
Congratulations! You can now sit back and relax while you wait for your invitation to the end of year Awards Ceremony in November.

Green Impact Awards Ceremony
The Green Impact Awards Ceremony is by far the most exciting event in the Sustainability Team’s calendar.
You’ll get the chance to celebrate your achievements with other Green Impact teams and members of the Sustainability Executive, while you snack on delicious food and drinks and hear which teams came out on top with the most points. There are prizes given to the top Award winners, with special prizes and acknowledgements also given, while all participants are recognised for their efforts with a certificate.
