EASL are thrilled to be the ResourceSmart Schools program provider for the Eastern Metropolitan Melbourne Region.
We are proud to help schools in the Knox, Manningham, Boroondara, Whitehorse, Monash, Maroondah and Yarra Ranges council regions to achieve their sustainability goals.
In 2018 and 2019, ResourceSmart schools across the eastern suburbs have saved:
- 2,542 Tonnes of greenhouse gasses
- 5,780KL of water
- 43, 063 m3 of waste diverted from landfill
And since 2008, 5,400,000 trees and other plants have been planted in ResourceSmart schools across Victoria!
The ResourceSmart program involves:
- Facilitation and support
Sustainability experts support schools on their journey to embed sustainability into operations and provide support on how to measure and track their school’s progress. The service is free and open to every Victorian school.
Schools can receive Sustainability Certification and can enter the ResourceSmart Schools Awards to be recognised and rewarded for school activities and achievements.
Schools learn to operate more sustainably; reducing costs to save on electricity, water and waste bills – and greenhouse gas emissions to minimise their impact on the environment.
Schools work through the ResourceSmart Schools program and create a unique environmental management system tailored to their needs.
Schools are assisted to embed sustainability into all learning areas and levels of the Victorian curriculum.
