Green Impact Awards
What are Green Impact awards?
Green Impact awards reward staff dedication to the scheme. They are presented at the awards ceremony, which takes place at the end of each year's Green Impact cycle.
How can we earn Green Impact awards?
What you need to do depends on which award you are aiming for. The workbook is divided into tabs for each award, with specific actions on each tab. To gain the Bronze award, you must complete all the criteria on the Bronze tab. For a Silver award, you need to do all the Bronze and Silver criteria. For a Gold award, you need all the Bronze and Silver criteria, and at least 250-points worth of Bonus criteria. Green Impact likes to reward every level of effort and even teams not quite completing all of the bronze criteria will receive a working towards bronze award.
