It’s an ambitious target, but they’re making impressive strides. Imagine a classroom powered by clean energy, where every lesson is a step towards a greener future.

Chromebooks: Built to Last

The Chromebook is more than just a student’s companion — it’s a statement of sustainability. Crafted with recycled materials, these devices are built to last, offering up to ten years of automatic updates. This longevity significantly reduces the need for frequent replacements, thereby minimising waste and carbon footprint.

With tools like Google Meet, Classroom, Docs, Forms, Sheets, and Slides, schools can embrace paperless operations, drastically reducing their environmental impact while fostering seamless virtual learning experiences.

Repairability and Lifespan Extension with ChromeOS Flex

Longevity is key to sustainability, and Google for Education gets it. Through initiatives like the Chromebook repair program and ChromeOS Flex, they’re extending the life of devices and curbing electronic waste. It’s a proactive approach to ensure that educational tools last longer and perform better.
