FACTSHEET: Schools taking the lead in our low carbon transition

We designed a new Low Carbon Schools Program to help reduce the operational carbon emissions from energy, water and waste in school buildings. The program also built community awareness, increased knowledge, and provided opportunities for initiatives to be implemented in the home. Fifteen schools were chosen to participate in the trial (10 primary and five secondary). The schools ranged in size from 80 students to 1400, though in 2016, the numbers increased significantly for several schools.
