The Austrian Eco-label for Schools and Universities of Teacher Education
The Austrian eco-label for schools and teacher training institutions has created an instrument for our school system to guarantee environmental compatibility, quality and health, particular environmental awareness and environmental commitment of a school, documented to the outside world.
The objective is for all groups of persons involved in everyday school life to take seriously ecological responsibility for the protection of an environment worth living in, and to foster and contribute to a socially responsible school climate as well as sustainable school development. Self-evaluation and examination by independent experts can assist schools in achieving positive environmental and quality-enhancing effects. In addition, savings in costs may generate economic advantages for the schools involved in the areas of energy, waste, and waste water management.

The catalogue of criteria comprises all relevant fields of environmental management and education for sustainable development. Specifically trained eco-label counsellors will assist in implementing the Ordinance.
The Province of Lower Austria supports the achievement of the eco-label with a sum of € 1,000.- . Re-certification (necessary after 4 years) will be supported with
€ 500.-, provided the school is already a member of the ÖKOLOG schools network, which we consider a sound basis to this effect.
