IGS is serious about its commitment to a sustainable future and to play a role in combating climate change. 

Sustainable Future is one of three strategic aspirations of the IGS strategic plan, Into the World 2016-2020, along with Limitless Learning and Empowered Students.

In August 2018, IGS developed a Sustainability Framework that strives to make the School’s campus, activities, and events sustainable. IGS believes in using the Earth’s finite resources as wisely as it can and continually monitor and evaluate the School’s operations and efforts.

IGS Head of Sustainability Carmelo Fedele works with staff, students and stakeholders to further develop and implement the IGS Sustainability Framework through initiatives and actions that will develop awareness of sustainability practices, support sustainability initiatives and develop sustainability projects, thereby improving the sustainability culture of IGS.

In 2017 Carmelo launched the IGS Sustainable Futures Club – a student-led movement to improve environmental sustainability at IGS.
