Kellogg receives Green Impact's highest award!

June 29, 2021

We are proud to announce that Kellogg has been awarded the highest award available at the Green Impact Awards for our sustainability work and initiatives, during 2020-21.

Green Impact is an environmental engagement scheme in which staff and students come together in teams to make their workplaces more sustainable, and is as much about changing behaviour as it is about making physical improvements.

The Covid-19 pandemic has made it much harder than usual to take part in Green Impact, but numerous teams rose to the challenge, in many cases continuing to work from home to make sustainable changes and promote environmental awareness among their colleagues.

Kellogg was one of only two University of Oxford Colleges to achieve Beyond Gold this year, with just four being awarded overall.

Kellogg Sustainability Fellow Dr Sandie Byrne, said “The enormous efforts of everyone concerned with Kellogg’s sustainability agenda have been recognised by our receipt of a Beyond Gold Award in the 2021 Green Impact Awards. Kellogg is one of only four places in the University to attain the Beyond Gold level.”

Kellogg student and Environmental Ambassador Manann Donoghoe told us: “With the work of our Sustainability Teams, recognised by this Beyond Gold Award, I’m confident Kellogg will continue setting the standard for college level sustainability within the University.”
