Chartwells, the UK’s leading school and education catering company, has launched a report in partnership with sustainability experts Footprint, that looks holistically at how educators can adopt a whole school approach to sustainability.
The timely report aims to support State and Independent schools implement sustainable change, with the Department of Education’s Sustainability team requiring that all state schools report their emissions by 2024 and have Climate Action Plans in place by 2025.
The content for the report has been generated through qualitative data, with the expert team at Footprint interviewing industry experts and innovators from across the education industry, in both State and Independent schools, including Headteachers, sustainability experts, suppliers, and charities.
The findings have been distilled into six key topics, focusing on – energy, water, food waste, packaging, menu development, and education – all of which capture the current best practices in these areas, whilst also digging deeper into the challenges and opportunities for driving sustainable change in each category.
