Meet our new organisations from 2018
We had a very exciting 2018 growing our Green Impact programme into new and exciting sectors. We now work with 10 NHS Trusts, over 60 businesses across the Isle of Wight plus new universities - see who joined the community below!
Green Impact continues to prove that staff working collaboratively across any organisation or business achieves carbon and costs savings whist also improving knowledge and understanding on how each sector can become more sustainable in the way they work. In 2018 we have had 19 new organisations sign up and they have already achieved some fantastic results!
