Sustainability vision and objective setting for an independent school


EEM accompanied a Montreal-based independent school in developing a sustainability vision and action plan to guide the school’s sustainability program.

Approach and Solution

Working with the school’s green-team composed of teachers, parents and students, EEM provided a toolkit and methodology for developing a sustainability vision and action plan for the school. EEM also facilitated planning workshops both with the green team and the school’s board of governors to build consensus and buy-in for the plan moving forward.


The sustainability roadmap provided the school with a means of prioritising and phasing their investments in sustainability to focus on the highest impact opportunities. The school’s sustainability vision broadened the focus of sustainability from one of greening facilities and operations to one of building the leaders of tomorrow by integrating sustainability into the school’s curriculum and engaging students in planning and implementing initiatives.
