Sustainability at the Guild

Being sustainable and looking after our planet is key to reducing the climate emergency. We want to embed sustainability in everything we do at the Guild, and to empower students to create positive change at the University, the local community and wider.

Go Green Week

Go green week is a 5-day event that will offer many ways for you to get involved in improving sustainability here at Exeter and wider. There will be activities and events hosted by student societies, the Guild and the University both in person and online. Haven’t got time to attend an event? Take part in our daily challenges using the hashtag #ExeGoGreen22!

Green Impact

Green Impact is an accreditation scheme for Students’ Unions delivered by SOS-UK, which we have signed up to this year. It aims to address issues around sustainability and social justice through projects and campaigns.

We’ll be sharing more information on our progress soon but an example of how we maximized our green impact during our election campaign is below.

For our Leadership Elections 2022, we planted a tree for every voter - this means we've planted 4250 trees! We've planted these via Ecologi where the trees are located in the most climate effective locations around the world.

Student Sustainability Alliance

The purpose of the Student Sustainability Alliance (SSA) is to: collaborate across campus on issues to do with sustainability, climate and conservation; coordinate and network with student groups and interested students; be a point of contact and consultation for the University on sustainability issues.
