Sustainability & Climate Action

The Richmond School District has taken a proactive role in environmental stewardship for many years.  Facilities have been constructed, renovated and retrofitted with energy conservation in mind, schools and other District sites have undertaken paper recycling programs and other waste reduction measures, custodial practices have changed to reduce packaging and incorporate more environmentally friendly cleaning products, and a number of other initiatives have been implemented to do our part in greening our operations. However, we need to do far more in the areas of climate action, conservation of non-renewable resources, water and the environment, and contribution to sustainable region principles established by Metro Vancouver. 

The District Sustainability and Climate Action Plan (coming soon) is the strategy the Richmond School District is currently developing to reach our targets of 50% greenhouse gas emissions reduction by 2030 and net zero operations by 2050.
