The Green Arts Initiative – Creative Carbon Scotland


The Green Arts Initiative supports Scottish arts organisations to be at the forefront of growing an environmentally sustainable Scotland. Run by CCS and Festivals Edinburgh, it’s an ambitious project designed to give venues and organisations the advice, support and tools they need to become greener and let audiences and the public know what they are doing.

The project comes with a simple accreditation scheme: everyone we work with is entitled to use the Green Arts branding to demonstrate their commitment to becoming greener.

CCS will also support Green Arts organisations to get further industry accreditation where appropriate, including Industry Green and ISO20121.
