Conscious of the earth's dwindling supply of carbon-based fuel, GEMS believes that education requires energy security. This means that alternative energy is required to reduce reliance on carbon-based fuel to the minimum. Children also need to be educated on the importance of finding alternative energy resources for the survival of future generations.
GEMS World Academy's green features are the use of high efficiency air-conditioning, natural ventilation, solar hot water heating, rainwater harvesting, photovoltaic cells, a geothermal heat pump, energy-efficient lighting, solar lighting, carbon monoxide gas and carbon dioxide gas monitoring and control, and individual metering.
