Track: Operational Data, Curriculum and Community, Water Consumption, Energy, School Supplies, Waste Management, Food and Beverage,  Transport and Air Quality.  Teach: Certified project-based ECA’s aligned with SDG’s for students covering key sustainability concepts for Prep School, Middle School and Senior School.  Reduce: Cost and carbon. There are 15,000 + global K-12 international school groups and independent international schools and colleges and 163,093 state schools in the U.K and the U.S.  The average carbon footprint of a K-12 school is 10,000 metric tons of Co2 per year (ref: EPA). Tuu aims to reduce partner schools Co2 by 5-15%.

Our co-founders hold a shared belief

The young people of today are the best hope we have at truly tackling climate change. We believe that by tracking sustainability in schools in real time and putting students at the heart of eco tracking efforts, we can give young people the agency they need to truly make a difference and become the green leaders of tomorrow.

Our vision is to give schools a simple and structured way to track their sustainability metrics and communicate their genuine eco efforts among stakeholders, employees, parents and potential customers.
