ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY

As part of the Scottish creative and arts industry, we have an opportunity to inform and inspire our audiences and with our festival aiming to encourage discussion of environmental issues, we know it's important to uphold a strong green policy that translates to environmentally-conscious decision making.

We are a member of Creative Carbon Scotland’s Green Arts Initiative programme, a network of organisations that work towards increasing the environmental sustainability of the Scottish arts community. We participate through the use of their tools and resources, and by communicating our data for annual feedback reports.
