Efficiency: Sustaining and saving the environment

As schools continue to monitor sustainability issues – and look for advice on how to improve their own energy portfolios – the example of those who have taken a lead in the field can be of great value. Sustainability charity Ashden’s LESS CO2 programme is a free energy efficiency scheme available to any UK school and Devon schools are one of their ‘graduating clusters’. Alex Green, Ashden’s schools programme manager, shares some of their top tips for managing sustainability projects.

Our LESS CO2 free energy efficiency programme is not only helping to create more sustainable schools but is also galvanising young people to join the movement for a low-carbon world.

One of the reasons that schools love the LESS CO2 programme – which is supported by Bank of America Merrill Lynch – so much is the fact that they get to learn from other schools and share their ideas, tips and stories.

So we asked one of our recent graduating clusters – Devon schools – to share some of their advice for schools that are just starting out on their own energy management journey. Here our they share their top tips to making sustainability a success.
