Faculty of Music

Green Impact

The Faculty of Music is committed to reducing its environmental impact. We hope everyone in the Faculty will join us in making our Faculty a more sustainable department.

The Green Impact Scheme is the University of Cambridge's environmental accreditation scheme. It helps support and encourage departments and colleges across the University to reduce their environmental impact and create more environmentally sustainable workplaces. Our Green Team was established in 2020 and we are working towards a bronze award in 2020-21. 

To find out more about the sustainability initiatives at the University, join the Greenlines mailing list.

A year like no other: view the University’s 2019–20 Environmental Sustainability Report online now.

The University is committed to reporting its progress towards the targets set out in its Environmental Sustainability Vision, Policy and Strategy. The Sustainability Team are delighted to announce that you can now view highlights of the university’s 2019–20 progress in a short video or share a summary with others. If you’re looking for a more detailed review, the full annual report outlines work going on across the university to reduce our negative environmental impacts.

Having accurate data is really important in evaluating projects and is essential to measuring progress against the university’s sustainability targets. The Sustainability Team are proud to say that PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) has provided independent assurance over the 2019/2020 KPI figures in this year’s Environmental Sustainability Report.

The sustainability progress at Cambridge over the past year has been substantial and, whilst there’s still more that can be done, the Sustainability Team would like to thank everyone who has been a part of creating a sustainable university.
