Caring for Country together
Our sustainability framework has been developed to address economic, environmental and social issues and create a momentum within the organisation as a whole for change.
Caring for Country together – our sustainability framework provides a strategic direction for sustainability across our organisation. It outlines our commitment to positive outcomes for sustainability, now and into the future.
Climate change is one of the biggest challenges we are currently facing and we are committed to helping tackle this global challenge.
We want sustainability to be a core part of who we are and what we do, to make a positive difference in the lives of our students and staff.
Our sustainability statement
For us, sustainability is central to our schools, regional and central services - it is all about caring for each other and the country we live in – for the benefit of our students and our communities, and in everything we do.
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Information Pack
The Department's sustainability framework is aligned with the State Government's commitment to transitioning to net zero emissions and actively addressing climate change.
The Department of Education was one of 16 government agencies asked to contribute to the Western Australian Treasury Corporation (WATC) information pack on Economic, Social and Governance credentials on behalf of the State Government.
