Reducing your school’s impact on the climate and environment is not as challenging as it may seem. There are many practical and cost-effective (often free!) changes you can make to help reduce your carbon emissions and to ensure your school is operating sustainably.

Essex County Council and the Essex Climate Action Commission have put together a schools advice pack to help you to do this. This advice pack is a collection of key guidance, tips and information to help your school cut your carbon, to reduce your impact on the environment and to help us improve long-term sustainability across Essex.

The Schools' Advice Pack is available to view here.


There is also a handy climate infographic which shares five practical tips on where and how your school can begin cutting carbon. You can view or download the infographic here.
