Steps to take
What is an Audit and why is it important?
Benchmarks
Benchmarks are important to acquire to be able to set goals and document progress.
Some areas to audit are: Energy, water, chemicals, consumption and waste, ecological impact, curriculum
and food. Start small and move on from there.
People needed
Faculty, staff, students, parents (community members and experts), facilities.
People were chosen to be on the committee and an invitation was sent out to others to submit an application to join
the committee. Meetings are held weekly and are open to all. Minutes are sent out via email and an email
conference is held to submit topics for the next meeting’s agenda
Action items
Identify those people needed to execute audit.
Meet regularly to discuss plan and results of plan.
Possible Time line
September: Meet and plan. Execute audit on what the current practices are
March: Gather all faculty and staff and present results of audit. Give a global perspective (2 minute video
presentation of why this is an issue). Break into smaller groups to create a plan of action.
