Greener Path Award

George Heriot’s has been awarded the ACM Environmental Greener Path Award 2020.

ACM Environmental commented

“This achievement of professional recognition has been awarded due to your selfless dedication and commitment to incorporating sustainable and eco-friendly measures into your business. The Greener Path Award is a reputable way to highlight CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) efforts and differentiate your business.”

As a sustainable school we prepare young people for a lifetime of sustainable living. We demonstrate our commitment to care through positive action.

Care has three aspects

  • Care for oneself (our health and well-being)
  • Care for each other (across cultures, distances and generations)
  • Care for the environment (both locally and globally)

At Heriot’s every member of the community is valued and encouraged to play their part in enhancing and protecting our world for future generations and we are delighted to receive recognition of our efforts in all areas of the school.
