MMU is looking for volunteer auditors to visit our Green Impact Teams and conduct environmental assessments of their work.

What is Green Impact?

You will be taking part in our national leading behaviour change programme that encourages staff to take actions to reduce their carbon emissions through competition. We have recruited 67 departments, influencing the behaviour of 2128 staff members, approximately half of MMU’s total employees! This is the largest number of Green Impact Teams active in any participating organisation. For more info click here and here.

What do I have to do?

Each volunteer auditor will be fully trained on the criteria and what they need to audit through a half-day of training session. In pairs auditors will then complete one or more audit. An audit should take between one and two hours to complete depending on the size of the department.
