Environmental Improvement Award for Fitzwilliam College

Fitzwilliam College has been presented with an Environmental Improvement Award by Cambridge University's Green Impact Scheme in special recognition of the College's innovative work on carbon offsetting.

The award recognises environmental improvement that has brought about a demonstrated and positive change.

Hero Chalmers, Fitzwilliam College's Fellow Environmental Officer, said: "Last year Fitzwilliam College announced an innovative programme that offsets the carbon emissions stemming from all Fitzwilliam-supported travel.

"The College’s Environmental Committee had a new policy approved to use Cool Effect, a non-profit organisation with a 13-year track record in carbon offsetting.

"An ongoing focus on sustainability has resulted in Fitzwilliam College winning two of the University’s Green Impact Awards this year."

Green Impact is a change and engagement programme helping people from across the University understand sustainability and social responsibility, what individuals can do to make a difference and supporting them in achieving these actions.
