ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION:
The Broadway Green Alliance (BGA) is an industry-wide initiative that educates, motivates, and inspires the entire theatre community and its patrons to implement environmentally-friendlier practices.

- It is impossible to be 100% “green” – we can only be greener. Each of us can begin by doing something to benefit our environment today, no matter the size of the action.
- The climate crisis is the result of millions of decisions and it demands action – big andsmall – from each of us. Change results from the cumulative effect of our actions.
- Climate neutrality is insufficient. In order to lessen the damage caused by climatechange and restore our climate to historically safe levels of atmospheric CO2, the BGAworks to promote climate positive action and commitments.
- We must build an equitable and just climate movement and address the disproportionateeffect of environmental degradation on poor and BIPOC communities. There is no climate justice without racial justice.
