For the ResourceSmart Schools program the benchmarks for waste, water and electricity are set as a target for schools to achieve, and are calculated on a per student basis. No benchmark is set for biodiversity, however an aspirational target exists. Schools do not need to meet benchmarks to complete a Module, but they do need to meet and maintain benchmarks to be recognised as a 3 Star to 5 Star School.
|Biodiversity||Schools are encouraged to achieve a habitat quality assessment score of 75 through their Biodiversity audit.|
|Waste||Maximum amount of waste to landfill per student per year: Primary or secondary school: 0.3 m³.|
|Water||Maximum mains water usage per student per year:
|Energy||Maximum electricity usage per student per year:
Starting the ResourceSmart Schools program is easy. Schools have access to sustainability experts with the knowledge, skills and resources to help each school on its journey. The first step is to register your interest.
Once a school registers interest, a Regional Coordinator will make contact to provide more information on the ResourceSmart Schools program.
