Sustainability Policy


Our activities have environmental impacts in the areas of: Energy, Water, Waste, Food, Toxicity, and Biodiversity.


Our ability to improve our environmental impacts depends on our knowledge of, and commitment to, addressing them, and our capacity to change and influence decisions not always within our immediate control (such as print materials provided by visiting productions). We will exert our efforts as much as possible to understand, measure, improve and communicate our environmental performance.


In 2011, we commissioned Pennine Groundworks to undertake an energy survey of our building and that has informed our Sustainability Action Plan and also our development work. As part of the development of our Masterplan, in the past few months we have commissioned a major environmental review of our next capital project, producing a report and recommendations that we are now sharing with potential funders.
