The certification verifies the schools – Laval High in Placentia, Elizabeth Park Primary and Paradise Elementary in Paradise and Holy Trinity Elementary in Torbay – are designed to save water and energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve indoor air quality and conserve resources.

Certification is awarded based on criteria including materials used, daylight views and installation of heating, ventilating, air conditioning and refrigeration systems, Transportation and Works Minister Steve Crocker noted in a news release.
