The Government wants all schools to be sustainable by 2020. All new school buildings have to be zero carbon by 2016. Is this something to work on now? You can now request that Ofsted looks at sustainability when inspectors visit. A zero carbon task force suggests four key areas for action:

  1. Reducing energy use in schools
  2. Sharing energy supplies
  3. School building designs
  4. Exploiting relevant and potential technologies
