Green Impact

Green Impact is a fun and flexible programme that enables staff and students to undertake practical actions to make our University more sustainable.

Green Impact started at Victoria University of Wellington in 2019 with over 200 staff participating across three campuses. Teams entered from libraries, faculties, schools and CSUs and were as small as two members and as large as 10 or more.

While the university tackles institutional-sized challenges with projects like the Zero Carbon Plan, you can tackle sustainability issues, compete with other teams across the university, and get recognition for your achievements towards our sustainability goals through Green Impact.
