Ontario EcoSchools is an environmental education program building on student success in academics and environmentally responsible actions to save energy, minimize waste, and green school grounds. The certification component of the program gives schools a means to establish environmental benchmarks and a scoring system to assess their environmental performance. To become certified, a school must complete an application and provide supporting documents that demonstrate achievement in at least four key areas: ecological literacy, energy conservation, waste minimization and school ground greening. Schools apply for certification annually. Schools that successfully complete a certification application may be visited by an auditor to verify their application. Both elementary and secondary schools may become certified EcoSchools.
In the 2012-2013 school year, 7 Limestone schools achieved EcoSchools certification.
