The GAI report showcases the work that Scottish artists and arts organisations have been doing to affect their carbon footprint and environmental sustainability, and highlights their plans for action over 2016.
In a year where the Green Arts Initiative doubled in its membership, the report highlights what our members have been doing to reduce their environmental impact, and they efforts they have gone to in order to extend environmental sustainability to their artists, audiences and staff members.
In October 2015 we hosted our first annual conference for GAI members, with over 20 speakers from the green arts community, and carried out a major survey to find out more about our members, and what help them achieve their sustainability goals. We learnt a huge amount the community, and have since planned a programme of resources and events over 2016 to help support our members.

The Green Arts Initiative is a networked community of Scottish arts organisations committed to reducing their environmental impact, and exploring how the arts can contribute to a more sustainable Scotland. Find out more about the Green Arts Initiative, and become a member, here.
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.
