Sustainability Practices

Schools can move towards becoming sustainable organisations by committing to identifying, conserving and improving the environmental and heritage values of their school site, and by reducing their ecological footprint. As a starting point they can reduce waste, minimise energy, transport and water usage, increase recycling, encourage biodiversity in the school grounds, conserve the heritage value of the site, use sound purchasing practices and ensure canteen products are environmentally appropriate. Moving towards sustainability needs to become an important feature of how the school organises its daily operations. The savings made can be used for other sustainability initiatives.  (Outdoor weatherproof sign
