The Department received a Platinum Green Impact award in 2021, following Gold awards in both 2019 and 2020.
The auditors said: "The Department of Computer Science has made a thorough contribution to sustainability through their efforts with Green Impact, and have done so consistently across team members and over time. Impressively, they have come up with creative ways to minimise waste and raised significant amounts for charity. They should be an example to other departments."
Green Impact is a United Nations award-winning programme designed to support environmentally and socially sustainable practice in organisations, and is run by the National Union of Students.
Our research centres span several departments and reflect how we collaborate with researchers from different subject areas.
