Our sustainability ambition: we model what we teach

A Long-Term Perspective Implies Acting Sustainably

Not only how we operate as a school but especially how and what we teach has an impact on future generations. We are aware that as an educational institution, we hold a double responsibility in society for the matter of sustainability.


We are therefore committed to sustainability in two ways: firstly, as a company we are striving for climate neutrality. Secondly, we anchor sustainability in education and promote sustainable, cross-curricular and cross-level initiatives launched by sustainability teams in the individual SIS schools.

  • All SIS schools periodically participate in the international benchmarking test ISA (International Schools’ Assessment).
