In August 2018, IGS established a Sustainability Framework to promote sustainability in the School’s campus, activities, and events. The framework reflects IGS’s dedication to using Earth’s resources wisely, with ongoing monitoring and evaluation of operations.
In 2020, IGS appointed Carmelo Fedele as Head of Sustainability, underlining our commitment to sustainable practices in school operations and education. Our first student Sustainability Portfolio Leader was appointed in 2021, reinforcing the importance of student involvement in sustainability leadership.
IGS has adopted the Eco-Schools model to structure and organise the School’s sustainability initiatives.
