The Story So Far

Helping your organisation reduce its carbon footprint

Since 2014, Creative Carbon Scotland has been working with Creative Scotland to provide a framework for carbon emissions reporting for Regularly Funded organisations, and to support Green Champions in arts organisations across Scotland.

Since 2018, Regularly Funded organisations have been required to submit a carbon management plan covering the duration of their funding, and are encouraged to develop a way to manage emissions into the future.

Below, you’ll find interesting information about what we’ve discovered on the carbon management journey so far.

All Regularly Funded Organisations (RFOs) were invited to provide information on their environmental impacts in the Environmental section of Creative Scotland’s Annual Statistical Survey reporting form for the period 2014-15 and then required to report their carbon emissions for 2015-16. 117 organisations reported their emissions, with a 31% increase in the amount of data reported.
