The Forum 6 support office at Whiteley has been recognised for its environmental sustainability progress in 2017.

At an award ceremony on 23rd June 2017 Hilary Misselbrook the Forum 6 facilities manager accepted the Green Impact Bronze environmental award on behalf of her facilities team from the mayor of Winchester David McLean.

Winchester City Council is keen to encourage businesses to improve their environmental performance and is therefore collaborating with the NUS to provide local businesses with free access to the awards. The Green Impact Award Scheme is administered by the NUS and this provides opportunities for Winchester students to engage with local companies and gain experience of auditing in a commercial environment and also to see how environmental theory can be applied practically.

'We really enjoyed taking part in The Green Impact Award as it required us to think beyond the usual scope of electricity and carbon monitoring and consider other relevant sustainability issues such as locally produced food through Hampshirefare, the support of fair trade goods through Fairtrade Fortnight and the options for sustainable transport in the Hampshire area.' Hilary Misselbrook, Facilities Manager
