Sustainability in Schools

Following a strategy that accounts for people, the planet, and the bottom line is not just beneficial for business, it benefits schools as well. Economic and social gains in addition to reducing the environmental footprint are prevalent in schools and districts that have implemented sustainability strategies. From significantly reducing energy use to improving air quality to providing new learning experiences and hands-on resource conservation activities for students, schools in Nevada and around the country have shown that implementing a sustainability strategy is a winning proposition.

The Nevada Business Environmental Program can assist schools and districts as a resource for sustainability program planning. We provide support through this website and its resource links. We can also assist directly in the planning process.
