Net Zero Challenge

Are you ready to join the challenge?

We can all act on climate change, with small changes that add up to a big difference.

As an organisation, Ulster University and Ulster University Students’ Union is committed to cutting our carbon emissions and today we are launching a new programme to help us do exactly that.

The Net Zero Challenge is all about showing you easy ways to reduce your carbon footprint and reward you for the changes you’re making!

There are a range of activities you can take part in - including travelling actively, going paperless and recycling - through an interactive online platform and app.

For each action you take, you’ll earn ‘Green Points’ with prizes up for grabs for the top earners.

What can I win?

There’s the chance for individuals to win 1 x £20 voucher each month, with a choice of vouchers for the winners including National Book Tokens, Boobalou, Marks & Spencer and Love2Shop – or you donate your prize to charity.

Each year, one organisation taking part in the challenge will win £250 for charity with a choice of: Trees for Cities, Galapagos Conservation Trust, The Trussell Trust, Surfers Against Sewage and Sustrans.

How do I join the challenge?

You can sign up for a free account at https://do.thenetzerochallenge.org

using your University email address. You’ll need to select the University as your team, which you’ll find under the ‘SECTOR’ section.

You can also download the free app by searching for ‘The Net Zero Challenge’ in the Google Play Store or App Store on iOS.
