Creative Scotland has published its Climate Emergency and Sustainability Plan, which sets out how the organisaton intends to address climate challenges, both internally and through its role in supporting the culture and creative sectors to achieve their own climate ambitions.
A range of actions will be taken to achieve net zero in its operations by 2030 and the organisation will work with the culture and creative sectors to help them achieve net zero by 2045, in line with Scottish Government commitments.
In the Plan, created with Creative Carbon Scotland, Creative Scotland commits to:
- Recruiting new specialist staff to work exclusively on the delivery of climate and sustainability objectives for Creative Scotland and the culture and creative sectors;
- Setting carbon budgets and expanding sustainable practice for Creative Scotland, in order to achieve net zero by 2030 and adapt to the impacts of climate change;
- Introducing climate and sustainability criteria to all Creative Scotland’s funding programmes;
- Working collaboratively with the culture and creative sectors to set sector-wide carbon budgets, to achieve net zero by 2045 and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
