About Us

We are a non-profit network of schools working together to help accelerate the transition to a sustainable future through our commitment to the principles of the Sustainable Schools Charter.

We leverage our collective influence and partner with innovators to catalyse systems change in four areas where major sustainability challenges and opportunities exist across schools: uniforms, food, buses and buildings.
