The outcome of the project is an assessment of our environmental impact, suggestions for reducing our impact including quantified steps to reduce carbon usage and single use plastics. Identification of potential funding sources to reduces impact e.g. building design, use of solar panels on all buildings etc. This could lead to drafting a statement of environmental principles for the organisation to adhere to.

Green Impact Auditors for the Highland Council

Posted by Sonya Peres

Green Impact

Green Impact is an environmental accreditation programme with an awards element, designed to encourage, support and celebrate organisations and educational institutions in embedding sustainability in all areas of their work. Interested staff and students volunteer to participate in the programme and receive a toolkit outlining actions they can take to progress sustainable practice.

Depending on the number of environmental actions teams carry out, they can achieve either: a working towards accreditation, Bronze, Silver or Gold award. All teams participating in Green Impact will need an audit to verify their level of achievement… and this is where you come in!

Auditing

We are looking for volunteer auditors support the teams and schools in the Highland Council area in reflecting and taking stock of their first year on the programme. Each volunteer auditor will be fully trained on the criteria and what they need to do in order to audit through a half-day of training. In pairs auditors will then complete one or more audit. An audit should take around an hour to complete depending on the size of the team.

What skills do I need?

No technical knowledge is needed! Full training will be provided. All you need is an interest in environmental issues and sustainability.

Please get in touch if you’re eager to get involved with Green Impact in an auditing capacity, or if you have any further questions.
