Whole school communities play a vital role in reducing the school’s carbon footprint by implementing carbon-reducing actions and solutions. Schools can take a systems approach to engage in evidence-based, collaborative science investigations to reduce their overall carbon footprint focusing on resiliency, creativity, and innovation. The Eco-Schools USA Carbon Calculator can be used in part:
- as a standalone calculator to assess your school’s carbon footprint;
- used in conjunction with our Cool School Challenge; and
- compliment the Eco-Schools USA Consumption and Waste, Climate Change, Energy, Sustainable Food and Transportation Pathways.
