In April 2022, the Department for Education (DfE) launched Sustainability and Climate Change: A Strategy for the Education and Children’s Services Systems, giving the green light for the school sector to act on environmental sustainability. Aiming to make the UK’s education sector the world leader in sustainability and climate change by 2030, the strategy outlines plans to address the curriculum, green careers, buildings and procurement, staffing and much more.

''At Child Poverty Action Group UK we see pre-loved uniform provision as a straightforward way for schools to be more environmentally sustainable and financially inclusive.
