We believe that students and staff should contribute to taking care of our environment. We have many features that help lower our school's environmental footprint.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design® (LEED) is an evaluation tool and a rating system that is recognized in over 160 countries as the international mark of excellence for green buildings.
Why is LEED important?
The physical environment where students learn plays an important role in influencing students and helping them prepare to become citizens in a complex and ever-changing world. By meeting the requirements of LEED certification, our newer schools both provide a healthy learning environment and a real life model of sustainable development.
Since 2006, all new CBE schools have been designed and built to a minimum LEED Silver rating. For more information, including a list of all CBE LEED certified schools, visit the Sustainability page on the CBE website. Also visit the Canada Green Building Council website.
