The department has recently achieved a silver award in the University's Green Impact program. Green Impact [] is an environmental accreditation and awards scheme run by the National Union of Students. It brings together staff and students to green campuses, curriculums and communities across the country.

To achieve the silver award the department's 'Green Pharmers' team had to complete 36 environmental actions from promoting recycling, to investing in more efficient equipment, to encouraging a switch off culture. The various criteria covered a broad range of issues under the sustainability umbrella, all tailored to the University's particular situation so as to impact local policy and processes.

This builds on last year's bronze award to embed sustainable thinking and sustainable practice at the heart of the department's activities.
