Image of the factsheet available for download. What is Efficient and Healthy Schools? 

The Efficient and Healthy Schools Campaign engages schools - especially those serving low-income populations and rural areas - to reduce energy costs and improve energy efficiency, health, and resilience. The campaign aims to connect schools with practical solutions, and provide technical assistance and resources to improve school facilities. 

In partnership with the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, this campaign will promote peer-to-peer learning among school participants. The campaign will recognize schools to highlight best practices and exemplary solutions. The campaign will also engage supporters such as designers, engineers, consultants, manufacturers, and program implementers, to better support schools that are investing in efficient and healthy school buildings.
