IGS Sustainability initiative pays off

The School recently switched off the air conditioning of the main campus for a week in celebration of Earth Hour. We are excited to share the results with you.

We estimated that the air conditioner contributes to approximately 70 per cent of the School’s energy use.

We are thrilled to share that switching off for a week saved approximately 1.7 tonnes of carbon emissions and further warming to our planet. We also saved $186.60 on the School’s energy bill.

With this data, IGS students are conducting research for Science and Geography assessments, and we look forward to sharing news about their beautiful work soon.

Note the reduction in energy use on 22 and 23 March
