Green Chemistry Green Impact Team

"In an ever changing world we need to make advancements to achieve the world of tomorrow today. To achieve this I just want to say one word, just one word: chemistry." 

- Ryan Barker, Green Chemistry PhD Student

Meet the Green Chemistry Green Impact team. We endeavour to minimise our effects on the environment following recommendations from the NUS Green Impact organisation. This can be anything from recycling paper to encouraging biodiversity! Green Impact teams across the country help make positive sustainable change through small changes in our labs and offices. Following a workbook of tasks, the team completes as many tasks as possible, gaining points along the way, and is awarded at the end of the year based on what they have achieved.

Our team was awarded Gold in both the office and lab categories in 2019 for making high impact improvements to the environmental performance of the green chemistry labs, promoting sustainable practices and reducing waste and energy consumption in office areas.

Any staff member or student working in the GCCE is welcome to join the team. If you are interested, please contact Ryan at reb576@york.ac.uk or Rebecca at rmd530@york.ac.uk

Having a team dedicated to sustainability in the workplace makes a world of difference."
