About Sustainability Support for Education

Sustainability Support for Education enables education settings to start or progress on their sustainability journey. This includes all types of settings from Early Years to Higher Education.

We offer suggested actions paired with quality-assured resources. You can filter these so you only see suggestions that are relevant to your setting - based on your teaching age, priorities, how far you’ve progressed already, estate, and more. 

Department for Education Strategic Aims

Sustainability Support for Education is part of a set of projects commissioned by the Department for Education to meet these strategic aims:

Reducing direct and indirect emissions from education and care buildings, driving innovation to meet legislative targets and providing opportunities for children and young people to engage practically in the transition to net zero.


Resilience to climate change

Adapting our education and care buildings and system to prepare for the effects of climate change.


A better environment for future generations

Enhancing biodiversity, improving air quality and increasing access to, and connection with, nature in and around education and care settings.
