Carbon Reduction in the Creative Industries

This post comes from Creative Carbon Scotland

Creative Carbon Scotland has published a scoping study into the carbon reduction potential in the Creative Industries.

In order to understand how the Creative Industries could reduce their carbon emissions, and benefit socially and economically from these efforts, the research concentrated on two particular sub-sectors: the craft sector, and the digital content sector.

The report describes the the work undertaken during the study, the responses of the interviewed businesses, and the main findings. It outlines the main sources of carbon emissions for these sub-sectors, as well as existing low-carbon activities already in place and the main opportunities for reduction. Finally, it provides recommendations to actions that could be taken, and the barriers that may be experienced.

The report will be of most interest to those working in, or supporting, the craft and digital content sectors of the Scottish creative industries.

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.
