Our projects are replicable and their impact scaleable. Our vision is that all schools everywhere have sustainable school uniforms, sustainable school food, sustainable school buses and sustainable school buildings.

Sustainable Schools Charter

The Charter is our members’ promise to each other and to their students, to operate according to a set of guiding principles related to sustainability. Heads of School sign the Charter when they join The Alliance as an expression of their commitment to prioritize sustainability in their operations and decision-making. The Charter’s eight pledges are represented by the leaves of the flower below.
