1F: Sustainability in Schools – the latest research

Workshop synopsis:

This workshop will unveil results from a brand new piece of research by the Independent Schools Council and Planet Mark that details the current landscape for sustainability in Independent Schools, including the unique challenges, opportunities and low hanging fruit to drive decarbonisation and cost savings through energy efficiency and more. Participants will leave with a strong understanding of sustainability within the sector, and the next steps that their own school should take.
