We were awarded Excellent status in the 2019/20 Green Impact accreditation programme highlighting our work on sustainability.
Here is what the assessors said:
Some exciting news, the results are in and I am delighted to announce that Glasgow Caledonian University Students' Association has achieved an Excellent Green Impact Students’ Union award!
Congratulations and thank you for demonstrating leadership on embedding sustainability and social justice across your campus, the curriculum, and wider society.
Your auditor said- GCU SA has some a really fantastic job this year of making their sustainability work student-led, collaborative and impactful. I was really impressed by how involved the E&E officers were, and how there were offshoots of activity happening all across the union, their enthusiasm must be infectious! The numerous projects linking sustainability with the community and social justice issues evidenced how deeply the union connects and understands the topics. Great work!
GCU Students' Association has been previously awarded Gold at the NUS Green Impact Awards for our work in ethical and environmental issues. In 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19 we achieved the "Very Good" criteria. We are currently working towards achieving NUS Green Impact accreditation for the current academic year (2020/21).
