Environmental Policy

Scotland’s climate change legislation sets a target date for net-zero emissions of all greenhouse gases by 2045. To play our part in achieving this, we place care of the environment at the heart of planning for the projects we produce and manage. In doing so we aim for a minimal carbon footprint across all activity.  

We are equally committed to telling the story of care of the environment and the different and better world this could create. One that is fairer to all as well as the planet. None of this can be done alone and we value partnerships with people and organisations who are clear in their vision of a better world operating under a green or wellbeing economy. 

We also consider business continuity for us as an organisation and the sectors we work with when planning in the short, and long term. 

In short, we walk the talk of doing our bit to look after the environment and each other. 

Here a few things we do:  

  • We monitor and evaluate all staff journeys and encourage the use of public transport where possible. We encourage all those we work with to do the same.
  • Where possible we work with suppliers that have a robust environmental policy in place.
  • We have an ethical procurement policy and check list. If we have to purchase new equipment we make sure it is as energy efficient as possible.
  • We invest in digital and online methods of communication. If we do produce print we use local printers and sustainable paper. Printed materials include an encouragement to recycle.
  • Where possible all old equipment is repaired, reused, stored or recycled.
  • Encourage shared resources and knowledge across all areas.
  • Support attitudinal change.
  • We encourage all creative team members to source materials they use locally.
  • Do less, do it better and take time.
  • Consider wellbeing a bench mark of success not growth.
  • Look at budgets differently and consider social and environmental costs, not just financial ones.
  • Make choices that prioritise care of the environment the norm.
  • We bank with Triodos – the ethical bank.
  • We are part of the Green Arts Initiative – an interactive community of Scottish arts organisations working to reduce their environmental impact.
