Volunteer as a Green Impact auditor

Train as an environmental auditor and support sustainable workplaces

Join our training session and then carry out online environmental audits of organisations across the UK!

What is Green Impact?

Green Impact is a United Nations award-winning programme designed to support environmentally and socially sustainable practice within organisations.

This can mean anything from communicating recycling systems, to committing to go Fairtrade; from supporting team health and well-being campaigns, to working towards carbon-neutrality! The model has been developed over ten years. Based on proven behaviour change models, its flexible approach means it can be tailored to meet each organisation’s unique needs.

By volunteering with us to audit Green Impact teams, you will help verify if they have carried out set actions to achieve their working towards, bronze, silver or gold award target.

What’s involved?

To apply, you must be a current student at a UK university. No previous experience is necessary.

As a Green Impact auditor, you will be fully trained by SOS-UK in a free IEMA-approved training course, for which you will receive a digital badge upon completion of the audits to showcase the skills you have utilised.

Following the training, you will spend some time reviewing the Green Impact toolkit submissions of staff at participating organisations and preparing questions to ask. You will then meet with the staff (online or in person), where you can ask questions and make final decisions on your audit. It's a great opportunity to view real-world implementation of sustainability in the workplace, as well as build new skills in communications, analysis and team-work.

Total commitment is between 6-10 hours, depending on how many audits you complete. This is a voluntary opportunity.
