CT Green Schools is a resource for educators, administrators, building officials, and students in K-12 schools, colleges, and universities around Connecticut.

CT Green Schools is an ongoing project to research, identify and promote an effective approach to sustainability on school grounds and college and university campuses state-wide. It provides resources to Connecticut schools interested in taking a comprehensive sustainability approach aimed at lowering energy use and cost, reducing greenhouse gases from building systems and transportation, water and waste water management, improving recycling, hazardous waste reduction and disposal, and materials procurement. This approach targets ten areas in building a green school, and twelve areas of sustainable activity on a typical K-12 school or college campus.
