Invest in net-zero schools: our submission to the Comprehensive Spending Review

Updated: Sep 24

Teach the Future recommends accelerated and consistent delivery of investment into the energy efficiency and carbon reduction of school buildings in the CSR and presents the argument, methodology, and costing for a zero-carbon education estate.

That is what we have told the treasury, in our Comprehensive Spending Review representation. A CSR representation is an opportunity for individuals and organisations to suggest where the Governments spending should go over the next three years, this CSR aims to prioritise several areas that link into our aims greatly, including: contributing to net-zero, ensuring every young person has a superb education and ensuring that all departments have the appropriate structures and processes.

You can read our representation below, it's 11 pages long and includes lots of details about how we can improve current school energy efficiency processes and why this is really important.
