Environmental Commitment

Green Arts Initiative logoTowards a Greener Gaiety

Ayr Gaiety Partnership is committed to being an environmentally responsible organisation and contributing to a sustainable arts sector in Scotland.

One of our key aspirations is to become known as Scotland’s ‘Best Small Green Theatre’. To help us achieve this, we have steadily been doing our bit to reduce the negative environmental impact which occurs from our work in the theatre and the community. Download our Environmental Policy to see an overview the environmental work that we’ve already done.

We are members of Julie’s Bicycle and Creative Carbon Scotland’s Green Arts Initiative, working closely with them to reduce our carbon footprint. We also recognise that we are able to lower our costs by reducing our environmental impact, which improves the charity’s financial sustainability.

We have identified the following areas as priorities for reducing our environmental impact:

  • Building management – use of energy, water and waste within the theatre
  • Travel – staff and audience
  • Office management
  • Marketing
  • Stakeholder awareness  – staff, audience, volunteers, visiting companies, funders, Board
