School District Sustainability Plan

The Go Green Initiative consults with school districts to develop comprehensive sustainability strategies addressing indoor environmental factors. We work closely with district leadership and school stakeholders to design and implement custom solutions for their unique needs and priorities. Our free services guide districts in developing their action plans, programs, and practices to ensure environmental health, safety, and efficiency across departments and facilities.

The Go Green Initiative guides districts and schools in managing their utilities sustainably and cost-efficiently. We work with school districts to collect, interpret, and make use of data to optimize indoor environmental quality and resource efficiency across facilities. This includes coaching effective use of Energy Star Portfolio Manager, a resource management tool from the EPA. Together with our strategic support, this service empowers districts to track their energy, water, and waste consumption and identify opportunities to reduce utility costs and environmental impacts.
