At Maramba Primary School we are celebrating becoming a five star Sustainable School. We have switched to part green energy which helps to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions. We have reduced our energy and water consumption and are continuing to look at new and innovative ways to reduce our environmental footprint even further. The reduction in our energy consumption between 2005 and 2006 has meant 20 tonnes less of coal being burnt. This has decreased our greenhouse pollution by a volume that would fill 171 train carriages.
Electricity usage between 2005 and 2006 has decreased by 16%
Water usage between 2005 and 2006 has decreased by 25%
Solid waste between 2005 and 2006 has decreased by 11%
With slight savings appearing for our gas usage
