The Sustainability Programme is a whole school initiative engaging the entire community to promote and foster environmental sustainability. 

WHAT IS SUSTAINABILITY?

In 1987, the UN defined sustainability as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

 

Our Journey

In 2018-2019 we embarked on a formal journey to embrace more sustainable behaviours at ISB. As part of that, ISB is now an Eco-Schools member. This formalises our commitment, provides a sense of community and engages us in meaningful collaboration with like-minded schools. In line with the Eco-Schools goals, our aim is to:

  • Foster stewardship towards our environment, reflected in our daily attitudes, dispositions and actions
  • Encourage the implementation of sustainable development practices at school
  • Empower students to take action and be the change for sustainability
  • Help students develop the ability to address current and future challenges of a globalised society
  • Contribute to a better society
  • Improve the school's ecological footprint
