Greening Our Venue
We are one of seven venues involved in the Greening Venues, Theatre Forum Pilot Project.
The aim of the Greening Venues, Theatre Forum pilot project is to reduce the carbon footprint of arts centres and venues in Ireland by addressing issues such as energy usage, waste management, biodiversity, and water usage.
Areas that have already been addressed at the theatre are:
- Electricity usage through updates of building Lighting to LED and investment in new LED stage lights.
- Heating usage through the installation of zoned heating controls and upgrade on exit doors.
- Waste reduction by the procurement of sustainable products in our bar and review of waste management system to reduce waste to landfill.
- Materials usage by reviewing all marketing material and testing alternative methods to traditional print as well as becoming a ticketless venue.
- Reusing and recycling theatre equipment and ensuring all equipment purchased is energy efficient.
- Ensuing that processes and practises used in creating arts activity are environmentally sustainable and have the lowest carbon footprint possible.
- Plan to create sustainable, native planting in our outdoor space.
