Examining Our Environmental Impact in the New Year

By reflecting on our carbon footprints annually, our alumnae community can lead important conversations about decreasing our environmental impact and achieving our school's net-zero emissions goal.

As we settle into 2024, it's a fitting time for our alumnae community to examine what more we can do to reduce our personal impact on the planet.

We were so glad to see many of you participate last year in calculating your carbon footprints. Your enthusiasm in raising awareness through this activity motivates us all to continue this important discussion.

With the ambitious goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, all of us need to steadily decrease our carbon footprints year by year. Using WWF's Footprint Calculator is one way we can estimate our environmental effect. Filling out the questionnaire can raise self-awareness and spark conversations among our community about additional steps we might take in our own lives. 

After calculating your footprint, I encourage you to share your outcomes on this site. Opening a dialogue about the results creates a space for us to brainstorm ideas what changes we can make - whether in our homes, workplaces, neighbourhoods or elsewhere in our lives.

As valued members of the St Georges and Old Girls community, we all have a role to play in addressing the climate emergency. Let's continue this conversation on how we can contribute through our words and actions. What steps will you take today to reduce your impact?
