Education Business 29.03

With the climate crisis upon us, this issue of Education Business explores what schools can do to reduce their carbon footprint.

Tom Wigg from the UK Green Building Council shares insights into how schools can reduce both operational and embodied carbon within their buildings. We also get an update from the Let’s Go Zero campaign on their initiative for schools to spend a month participating in climate action, with simple ideas such as uniform swap shops and encouraging active travel.

There’s also a feature giving advice to schools wanted to take advantage of the government’s new grant for electric vehicle charge points, plus advice on fire safety for SEND schools, and a look at remote learning four years on from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Elsewhere we reveal the shortlist for our very own Education Business Awards which will celebrate the outstanding achievements of schools and academies across the UK this June.

I hope you enjoy the issue.
