Sustainability Victoria

The next generation of sustainability warriors has arrived, and Brentwood Secondary College is leading the way. Last year, the school was recognised for its impressive efforts in taking real action against climate change, winning not one, but 3 prizes at the 2022 ResourceSmart School Awards, including School of the Year. The Glen Waverley school also took out Secondary Student Action Team of the Year and Secondary Community Leadership School of the Year.

ResourceSmart Schools is a Victorian Government program delivered by Sustainability Victoria which provides practical support to schools to reduce resource use, save money, integrate sustainability into the curriculum and share learnings beyond the school gate.

As the first 5-StarResourceSmart secondary college in Victoria, Brentwood is a strong role model to schools across the state. They have demonstrated that climate action and zero emissions are achievable goals by reducing their emissions by 23% over 5 years and generating 40% of their electricity through renewable energy.
