Green Impact Commitment 

Green Impact is a UK-wide environmental accreditation scheme. University staff take part each year to achieve awards for making their workplaces greener and more environmentally sustainable. The Naughton Gallery achieved a Silver Award in 2017, and are working towards a Gold. 

We are committed to the Green Impact initiative for a number of reasons:

  • To comply with the 2008 Climate Change Act, there are legally binding national targets to reduce carbon emissions by 34% by 2020 (from 1990 baseline).
  • Queen’s University Belfast has committed to the adoption of these national targets, and future Capital Funding could be linked to our Environmental performance.
  • It’s the right thing to do! We have a responsibility as global leaders in education, and as citizens to protect the Environment.
