We believe that all learners, leaders and community members have a shared responsibility for minimizing their impact on the environment and for taking an active role in protecting it. 

The Board has a number of programs in place in our schools and workplaces to model environmental sustainability, including:

  • Litterless or boomerang lunch programs

  • Water bottle refilling stations to reduce the use of water bottles

  • A tracking program which measures and evaluates electrical demand and consumption in ‘real-time’ so schools can track their energy use

  • Waste reduction programs, including vermicomposting
