ECS Climate Change & Sustainability
As part of Aberdeenshire Council’s Routemap to 2030 the ECS Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy has been developed with the help of pupils and staff across Education and Children’s Services.
The progress of Education and Children’s Services Sustainability Strategy can be tracked on Engagement HQ: https://engage.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/admin/projects/ecs-climate-change-and-sustainability

Aberdeenshire Council now considers the impact on sustainability as part of all decision-making. We record the carbon footprint of all council sites, including schools, and continue to look for ways to reduce this carbon footprint. We are keen to encourage all children and young people to add their ideas to the Ideas Wall in the pupil area to help progress our ECS Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy.
