Environmental Sustainability

Oasis Community Learning recognises its responsibility as an education provider to protect the environment for current and future generations. We are on a journey to becoming Net Zero. This is being moved forward by several initiatives happening across the trust as a whole and within individual academies

We are proud of the steps we are taking on this journey, and invite you to read more about this. 

Initiatives Introduced so far

Upcoming Initiatives

Initiatives we have in the pipeline for upcoming months include:

  • We are now in the midst of switching all of our lightbulbs to LEDs in all of our academies, in our one of our biggest strategic projects to date, see below for more detail.
  • We will be carrying out waste audits at some of our academies with Veolia to better understand how we can reduce our waste and increase our recycling rates towards becoming more circular.
  • Saving energy is a huge focus right now, so as well as our LED project, our Eco-Champions will be using the interactive Energy Sparks platform to reduce our consumption through behavioural change activities and ‘switch off’ stickers.
  • We are in the very early stages of developing an environmental management system which will help to bring structure and governance to support our Net Zero goal and other environmental aims and ensure we are continually improving.

Resources we like

Whilst we are all finding our feet on our journey towards Net Zero and our other environmental sustainability objectives, there are some educational resources we are finding useful and would like to point out in case you find them useful too. We may update and add our own to these as we go, so please check back, or reach out direct via environment@oasisuk.org.
