Measuring travel is one of the biggest challenges facing artists and cultural organisations when it comes to better understanding their environmental impact. For organisations this is often due to large quantities of data coming from multiple sources. Travel is also often the largest source of emissions for individuals and organisations so we thought it was important to find a way of making measuring travel an easier process for individuals and organisations. This online tool was especially commissioned by Creative Carbon Scotland to help arts organisations simplify their travel recording. Read more and sign up to claimexpenses.com.
Use our Energy Toolbox to help calculate estimates of your office space’s energy consumption.
For anyone who rents a studio or office space where heat, light and power are included in the rent. This spreadsheet tool provides a way of calculating an estimate of the carbon footprint of their accommodation. By supplying just the floor area of your office and the number of people working in your organisation you can use the tool to provide information for your annual reporting or for your employees and audiences. You can also use it for a more in depth analysis to help you recognise your best energy saving opportunities. You can find out more about the background and development of the tool, here in our Resource pages
Note: We would always recommend asking your landlord for information on fuel bills if available.
Our Green Arts Portal is a unique resource designed to provide you with support in measuring and reducing your environmental impact. You can access a range of guides in areas including data gathering, building and office energy usage, waste, travel and policies on our Green Arts Portal pages.
How to use Action Lists on Green Arts Portal
When you first visit the Green Arts Portal we recommend that you look through the action lists down the left hand side of your dashboard – these action lists will help to guide your green work. You can consult the resources and links attached to each action to help you complete them. The Action lists are ordered from easiest to most difficult to give you an idea of where to start.
