Helping your organisation reduce its carbon footprint

There are lots of ways that Creative Carbon Scotland can help support Green Champions in the cultural sector: whether they are new to the role, or have been creatively tackling sustainability for years!

Book a one-to-one meeting

For many Green Champions we know that the prospect of recording and reporting your emissions can be quite daunting and it can make all the difference to get specialist advice and to talk over what you need to do in your organisation. You could be struggling to find your energy meter, be new to our online tools or keen to get other staff involved. Whatever the reason we are happy to meet with you at your office or venue.

Please email our Carbon Advisor  Fiona MacLennan to arrange a meeting.

Develop your Environmental Policy

Writing down your environmental policy will help you carry out your green actions. Your policy doesn’t need to be long and complicated. It should be an active document which makes it easy for members of staff to make more environmentally sustainable choices in your organisation. Most importantly, it should be simple, practical and have backing and approval from your management team.

Send us your draft policy and we can give you feedback to Fiona MacLennan

See our Guide to developing your environmental policy .

Training workshops

Our training workshops are free to attend and offer you the skills and knowledge you need to start gathering data and developing your environmental policy.

The September 2016  workshops took attendees through the reporting process for the new Creative Scotland annual reporting pro-forma. A pdf version of the workshop is available on our website. If you are required to complete an environmental report for Creative Scotland, check out our Carbon Reporting for RFOs page.

In addition to our workshop programme we are happy to come along to your organisation and hold a dedicated session for you and your colleagues. Get in touch with Fiona MacLennan to arrange your in-house session
