Abstract

The Sustainable Schools program was designed to help schools become more sustainable with regards to water, waste, energy, and biodiversity. Meetings, research, and interviews were conducted to develop tools for the program. A checklist was compiled containing actions to increase sustainability and referencing the technology review. This review features explanations, calculations for cost-benefit analysis, and resources where more information can be gathered for each technology. Together, these tools enable schools to better understand the technologies available to become more sustainable.
