RP3020 Fact Sheet: Schools: Taking the lead in our low carbon transition

KEY POINTS

• Many school buildings are old and inefficient
• There is no national benchmark for energy/water efficiency of school buildings and little guidance available for schools to increase their operational performance
• We are tracking how our community-led low carbon program is enabling 15 schools to maximise their operational efficiency and achieve carbon neutrality and, in turn:
• Reduce utility bills and C02 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
