About ARUgreen




ARUgreen is an interactive programme for all employees and students at Anglia Ruskin University, rewarding you for the behaviours that improve individual and campus-wide sustainability and wellbeing. You'll compete as part of a team to earn Green Points for your actions. There are a whole range of actions that you can earn points for under different themes:

  • Monthly Challenge
  • Get Involved
  • Energy Saving
  • Sustainable Travel
  • Waste and Recycling
  • Health and Wellbeing
  • Responsible Purchasing

Each activity has a full description of what you'll need to do to earn Green Points - some will require a submission that you can make through the website, whilst others will invite you to report your actions on a weekly basis.
