Captain Carbon needs your help to battle against energy waste in our schools and classrooms.

 30 percent wasted fixedDid you know that 30% of energy used in the UK is wasted? Powering one older light bulb can create 2 tons of CO2 each year.

By helping us tackle this, you can help us to become greener and use our money to invest in things that will continue to improve our schools for our students.

The UK Government has already set out its strategy to become ‘Net Zero’ by 2050 – and we all need to play our part to achieve this.

Captain Carbon is our schools’ first line of defence, battling against wasted energy and launching his mission to raise awareness of and encourage more sustainable behaviours. Reducing the amount of energy, we use will have the biggest immediate impact.

Launching at the same time as the UN Climate Change Conference (COP27) – Captain Carbon will burst into action in different places throughout our schools. Staff and students will be asked to work together to create their own Captain Carbon Action Plan, before bringing this plan to life.
