Ashden - Less CO2

Less CO2, brought to you by Ashden

Less CO2

The LESS CO2 sustainable schools programme is a free energy efficiency programme available to any UK school, regardless if you are council run, an academy or independent.

Through a series of half day workshops spread through the year, peer mentoring, expert advice and resources, staff are empowered and equipped to make changes and improvements to their school to reduce their energy usage, save money on bills and lower their CO2 emissions.

Schools that complete the LESS CO2 programme become an Accredited LESS CO2 School.

Schools can register their interest via our website:


LESS CO2 is the schools energy reduction programme brought to you by Ashden.
Ashden is a charity with a mission to help accelerate the transition to a low-carbon world through increasing the take-up of sustainable energy. Through our annual Awards Ceremony we recognise and reward the most innovative sustainable energy pioneers in the UK and developing world.

Through our programmes we help our winners scale up and spread their best practice so others can learn from them.

At WCSQM we work with LESS CO2 to promote their sustainable schools programmes across World Class Schools. Their free service has helped many World Class Schools reduce their energy usage, bills and CO2 emissions. For more information on running the programme at your school contact:
