At Broomfield we care about the environment and the future of the planet for our children. Sustainability and our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint sits forefront in our educational goals and business decisions.
In line with the outcomes of COP27 we look to continuously invest in actions to reduce our own impact on global warming, embrace technology that will allow us to monitor our carbon emissions and work to protect our planet through actions great and small.
In 2023 we achieved The Planet Mark Business Certification, which is a widely recognised symbol of sustainability progress. It demonstrates our commitment to measuring and reducing our carbon emissions, ultimately contributing to our environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. The certification means that we can confidently report on the steps we re taking and the progress being made to protect our planet and work towards being a net zero school.
We also work closely with Transport for London and have an established travel plan in place meaning we are able to demonstrate at least 90% of pupils and staff travel to school using pubic transport, or by cycling, scooting or walking to school each day. Our travel plan is designed to inspire others to transform travel habits, fully engage our wider community to promote best practices, and see a measurable reduction in the number of journeys made by car every day.
Again for 2023-2024 we are delighted to have been awarded the TfL Travel for Life accreditation Gold Star, the highest level of accreditation.
