The TwinsUK Sustainability Team meets quarterly to discuss initiatives to improve sustainability at TwinsUK. We work closely with the King’s College London Sustainability Group as part of their Green Impact awards, held annually in the summer term. We are currently working towards our Bronze Award in sustainability.

The TwinsUK Sustainability Team works to improve the sustainability of TwinsUK and the Department of Twin Research as a whole, as well as embedding a culture of sustainable practice.

We are thrilled that the Department of Twin Research was awarded a Silver award in 2019 in recognition for our actions to promote sustainability in the department.

The team were awarded a Gold award in 2022 in recognition for their actions to promote sustainability in the labs – congratulations to Grammatiki, Samira and Sam for their work.
