School governors discuss energy efficiency


Developing a Policy
Developing a policy commitment to energy efficiency has to come from the top and should be backed up by a mission statement and energy policy. 
School Governors should look to develop a policy which: 
• Makes a clear statement of commitment 
• Specifies clear objectives and targets for energy consumption 
• Identifies responsibilities and resources 
• Provides an action plan and states how it will be achieved 
• Sets out the review timeframe. 

The Governors should review the policy periodically and report savings and areas for improvement.
