Certificate stating that Girton college achieved Platinum Colleges Standard in 2020-21

We are delighted to have been awarded the Green Impact Platinum Award in 2020-21, for the second year running.

This year we received the following feedback:

“Sustainability is absolutely embedded in Girton College, it’s fantastic to see that all of their decisions are informed by a proper assessment of sustainability and product lifecycles.” 

"We were particularly impressed by your initiatives to tackle waste, including the reusable container scheme, engagement initiatives such as garden walks, and the formation of the new Green Society."   

Green Impact is a part of The Cambridge Green Challenge, the University of Cambridge’s environmental accreditation scheme, which supports and encourages departments and colleges across the university in reducing their environmental impacts.
