For the second year running, LMH has been awarded ‘Beyond Gold’ in the NUS Green Impact Awards, one of only seven colleges and departments at the University of Oxford to achieve the highest level this year.

The award was presented at the annual Vice Chancellor’s Environmental Sustainability Awards, held on 20th June at The Divinity School in the Bodleian Library. The Sustainability Awards recognise and honour the achievements of those who are contributing toward the University’s strategic environmental goals. You can read more about the awards in this year’s brochure.

Green Impact is a learning and awards programme run by the National Union of Students UK that supports environmentally and socially sustainable practice within organisations. The programme runs over the course of 12 months, and LMH came top of the Oxford University programme’s league table, with 1,068 points from 108 completed actions this year.

Actions that LMH has taken in pursuit of greater environmental sustainability include: serving more plant-based meals in Hall; taking part in Switch Up Your Lunch; completing a large project to decarbonise Eleanor Lodge and make it more energy efficient; making efforts to reduce plastic consumption and food waste in college and much more. 

Environmental sustainability continues to be an important area of focus for LMH and you can read more about our priorities via the link below.
