Commitment to Action

Energy-Efficient Schools Initiative

Commitment by

Jayni Chase, National Wildlife Federation, Serious Energy

In 2010 the National Wildlife Federation, Serious Materials, and Jayni Chase committed to creating and supporting a coalition of manufacturers, installers, unions, and others, to launch a comprehensive energy-efficient and environmental education model in 500 schools by year-end 2012. The Energy-Efficient Schools Initiative is a comprehensive strategy to reduce barriers for implementing energy efficiency in America's schools through hands-on application of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) by students and building retrofits. As the school infrastructure is greened, students will learn about conservation and efficient technologies while developing skills to meet the complex challenges of careers, daily living and citizenship.
