  • Encouraging the use of public transport where ever possible.
  • Encouraging all permanent staff members to travel to work in an environmentally sustainable manner.
  • Investing in more electronic ways of communicating to reduce paper usage.
  • Recycling all set and costumes when shows have finished, where possible.
  • Investigating electronic ways of providing information to marketing teams, ie sending out press packs on a USB stick.
  • Working with suppliers who have a good environmental policy, where possible.
  • Considering the energy usage of any new electronic equipment purchased.
  • Including an encouragement to recycle on any paper material printed.
