Green Impact Awards 2016/17 - Gold and Silver for BMS

The department has received two Green Impact Awards for 2016/17; a Gold Award for the department (again) and a Silver Award in the Laboratory category.

Our efforts to reduce our environmental impact include recycling the majority of our waste, reducing the use of packaging and investing in equipment and lighting that powers down after a few minutes. The strategies both help the environment and reduce cost in the long term by avoiding waste.

Congratulations and thanks to the BMS Green Impact Team; Melanie Hannah, Andrew Metcalfe, Neil Everill and Sarah Boddy.
