LESS CO2

An energy efficiency programme for schools

Through four half-day workshops spread through the year, peer mentoring, expert advice and free resources, staff are empowered and equipped to make changes and improvements to their school to reduce their energy usage, save money on bills and lower their CO2 emissions.

It’s a free programme available to any school, regardless of whether you are council run, an academy or independent. On average, schools that participate save £2,600 and 10 tonnes of CO2 in the first year.

The programme is delivered by the charity Ashden. Low Carbon Hub was a winner of the 2016 Ashden Award for Sustainable Communities and we are thrilled to be working with them to bring this programme to schools in Oxfordshire.

We have had our first cohort successfully graduate from the programme in 2018. The 2019 programme started in September with schools from across Oxfordshire attending to cut their energy use.

Work at a school in Oxfordshire, or know someone who does? There’s still time to get involved, so please do express your interest in the programme or sign up.
