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."
