Our New Season Will Be Announced Shortly
Cumbernauld Theatre is committed to best practice in minimising the environmental impact of its activities. We comply with all relevant environmental legislation, regulations and requirements, aim to regularly review our Environmental Policy, and seek to reduce our impact by setting carbon reduction targets.
Cumbernauld Theatre is proud to be a member of the Green Arts Initiative. Run by Creative Carbon Scotland and Festivals Edinburgh since 2013, the Green Arts Initiative supports Scottish arts organisations to be at the forefront of growing an environmentally sustainable Scotland.
Within Cumbernauld Theatre’s operations and offices the following principles apply:
Double-sided printing and multiple pages per sheet are used whenever possible to minimise paper and ink usage, and documents and correspondence are printed only when strictly necessary.
EU Ecolabel or FSC certified paper will be used for printing.
All staff will use the internal recycling facilities, which can take paper, cardboards, plastics, cans, glass, printer ink-jet and ribbon cartridges.
North Lanarkshire Council recycling bins and facilities located in Wardpark Recycling Centre can be used for other materials.
All electronic equipment will be switched off when not in use.
We actively encourage people to receive emails rather than letters, brochures and flyers and actively encourage people to visit our website and social media sites for information rather than relying on printed material.
When claiming for travel expenses departure and arrival points and the type of travel must be logged.
When travelling on office business, the method of travel is chosen on the basis of cost effectiveness and environmental impact.
For journeys within Cumbernauld walk, cycle or use public transport whenever time allows rather than cars/taxis. Some preplanning will help keep use of cars/taxis to a minimum.
For journeys within the UK, trains will always be chosen over air travel.
For international flights, non-stop flights are preferred to multiple short-haul stops
We will seek to minimise unnecessary travel in our tour booking
When choosing accommodation we will check sustainable tourism sites e.g. https://www.green-tourism.com/pages/home
Gas, electricity and water usage is recorded in order to identify clear actions to reduce energy use.
There is an ongoing plan for replacement of lighting stock with more efficient and energy reducing LED bulbs/lamps
Employees are trained in good environmental practice and are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the environmental policy
