3 Acorns Eco-audits have eco-audited a number of primary and secondary schools across
Our school eco-audits will not only help you demonstrate good environmental practice
in how your school is run but they also provide a great opportunity to teach and
inspire students to start eco-auditing their own family's home and lifestyles.
Schools qualify for our special school rates. Prices depend on size and complexity
of the school or college.
Some schools that we have eco-audited have been successful in persuading their local
authority to fund their eco-audit as a demonstration and learning opportunity that
can be applied to other local schools in the area.
What do our school eco-audits include:
An school eco-audit is the assessment of a school's current environmental practice
and the drafting of a plan with proposals for its improvement.
They can include:
Meeting with school management
Attendance at a staff-meeting to explain the process and to include employee
input and suggestions
Site walkabout with person responsible for facilities management
One-to-one meetings with any identified key decision makers such as the
school's bursar or whoever is responsible for purchasing and HR
A comprehensive, detailed electronic report detailing where your school already
has good environmental practice in place and a list of recommendations on how to
Presentation/ Q&A at school assembly (more appropriate for secondary schools)

Our approach is friendly, accessible and down to earth. We aim to ensure that the
process fits in with your particular school's or college's culture.
Areas covered by the Eco-Audit can include:
Potential for Renewable Energies
Carbon Footprint Calculation
Our approach aims to discover what you are doing well already rather than to find
fault and to help the process of improving your environmental performance constructively.
The courtesy follow-up visit a year later is essential if you are to get the full
value of the time and money you have invested in the eco-audit.
