Creating and Developing your Environmental Policy

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Wanting to update your current environmental policy for 2015? Or maybe you’re looking to create a new environmental policy and don’t know where to begin- whichever best describes your current situation, our latest resource is a useful read for now and to return to later.

Our Creating and Developing your Environmental Policy resource lists simple questions to ask yourself at the beginning of your policy-creating or policy-updating procedure. The process is also broken down into five simple steps- Involve staff in your policy development, Think about boundaries, Don’t start from scratch, Break it down into manageable chunks and Think about processes.

Other resources about policies can be found in our Policies Case Study Section.

These resources include Environmental Policies from The Tron Theatre, CCA, Glasgow Film Theatre and National Theatre of Scotland, amongst others. Have a look for some inspiration to get started today!

Creative Carbon Scotland is a partnership of arts organisations working to put culture at the heart of a sustainable Scotland. We believe cultural and creative organisations have a significant influencing power to help shape a sustainable Scotland for the 21st century.

In 2011 we worked with partners Festivals Edinburgh, the Federation of Scottish Threatre and Scottish Contemporary Art Network to support over thirty arts organisations to operate more sustainably.

We are now building on these achievements and working with over 70 cultural organisations across Scotland in various key areas including carbon management, behavioural change and advocacy for sustainable practice in the arts.

Our work with cultural organisations is the first step towards a wider change. Cultural organisations can influence public behaviour and attitudes about climate change through:

Changing their own behaviour;
Communicating with their audiences;
Engaging the public’s emotions, values and ideas.
