Schools in Redbridge save money after change in their energy consumption

First published in News by

Ten schools in Redridge have managed to save an average of £1,600 a year after a change in their energy consumption two years ago.

In 2010 Redbridge Council adopted the Redbridge Environmental Action Plan (REAct) and aimed to reduce its impact on the environment.

Since 2010 the council has saved 102 tonnes of CO2 in ten schools, increased the number of sites used for nature conservation by 25 per cent, saved 61.8 per cent of rubbish from landfill and reduced the number of children travelling to school by car to 27.4 per cent.

The council has also retained its Fairtrade Borough status.
