Schools: Taking the lead in our low carbon transition

1 Sep 2018
Description

Many school buildings are old and inefficient and there is no national benchmark for energy/water efficiency of school buildings and little guidance available for schools to increase their operational performance. 

We tracked how a community-led low carbon program enabled 15 schools to maximise their operational efficiency and achieve carbon neutrality and, in turn: 

  • reduce utility bills and carbon dioxide emissions 
  • improve the health, comfort and wellbeing of students and teachers, which can translate to productivity and learning outcomes 
  • demonstrate community leadership, participation and learning
  • support a transition to a low carbon future.
