Cumbernauld Theatre’s Environmental Policy
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, to minimise our environmental impact:
∗ EU Ecolabel or FSC certified paper will be used for printing.
∗ Double-sided printing and multiple pages per sheet are to be used whenever possible to minimise paper and ink usage, and documents and correspondence are printed only when strictly necessary.
∗ For other items, contact the Director of Administration to determine whether they can be recycled.
∗ External recycling facilities located in the car park can be used for glass and clothing/material.
∗ All staff will use the internal recycling facilities, which can take paper, cardboards, plastics, cans, printer ink-jet and ribbon cartridges.
∗ All electronic equipment will be switched off when not in use. At the end of the working day, the last staff member to leave the office checks equipment to ensure that all computers are shut down and all printers are switched off, unless otherwise labelled.
∗ We actively encourage people to receive emails rather than letters, brochures and flyers and actively encourage people to visit our website 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 in the appropriate cells on the expenses form. This is to help us form a footprint of our travel-related emissions, which will help us work out how to minimise them.
∗ 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 taxis. Some preplanning will help keep use of 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.
∗ If it is more sustainable to use your own car on CTT business, the current mileage allowance is 40p per mile.
∗ We will seek to minimise unnecessary travel in our tour booking
∗ When choosing accommodation we will check the Green Tourism Business Scheme listings in the first instance for sustainable accommodation: http://www.green-business.co.uk/GreenBusiness_GreenPlacesToStay.asp. Accommodation in the GTBS listings will be working towards greater sustainability, and so is worth using when possible.
∗ 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
