  • Impacts and Aspects
    Bronze Each year in order to keep us on our toes the criteria change as well as the points needed and so in 2012 we started a new submission and were amazed when not only did we receive Silver accreditation but also the Most Improved Students Union Award for the points difference we achieved in going from Bronze to Silver Last year in 2013 we achieved Silver once more again working through a comprehensive work book and instigating campaigns and genuine change We are once again aiming to maintain our silver award through continued improvement of the Green Impact workbook To give you an insight into the work involved GISU consists of the following targets to meet each standard Bronze achieve all 25 bronze criteria total of 145 points Silver achieve all 25 bronze all 16 silver criteria total of 470 points and an overall score of at least 455 obtained from gold and an expansive range of bonus criteria Gold achieve all bronze silver and all 9 gold criteria total 580 points and an overall score of at least 555 points the rest obtained from bonus criteria This is no mean feat and we would currently struggle to meet Gold as we are not metered separately from the University and so cannot easily demonstrate any annual reduction in our carbon footprint which is a key feature for that award but we are able to lobby the university to implement changes on the behalf of union members to ensure that we are a proactive as possible when addressing our environmental impacts The Bronze Silver Gold and Bonus criteria are all designed to ensure Unions are beacons of good environmental practice in the areas of Policies and Procedures Procurement of supplies and equipment Physical location and buildings Banking and Investments Waste disposal Printing and paper usage Campaigning educating and lobbying others Commercial operations e g shops and bars Internal hospitality and refreshments Carbon footprint and energy consumption Biodiversity Community engagement and contribution Travel arrangements Employment terms and conditions and job descriptions IT equipment and work stations Cleaning materials Employability programmes Support for causes such as Fairtrade and People and Planet Active environmental student societies Compliance with environmental legislation You can see that if the Union was to succeed in all of the above areas it would make a significant impact on the environment so it is important to have as many members able to contribute towards achieving the highest awards possible Here are some of the things we have achieved as a Union in the last 3 years as a result of our GISU Bronze then Silver accreditation and our engagement with this agenda Improved our internal working practices from what stationery we buy to the cleaning products used by the University to what kettle we have Ensured that the majority of our lighting contains the recommended T5 tubes and LED bulbs Ensured staff who cycle to meetings at work can claim mileage and we monitor the number of miles staff
