Sustainability

Here at HOME we are committed to best sustainable policy and practice. We work hard to reduce the environmental impacts of our activities and we are dedicated to understanding, measuring, improving and communicating our environmental performance and engaging with our community in this process.

We consider every aspect of our service chain and integrate environmental and ethical considerations in choosing the supplies and services we use and the products we deliver. We consider the programming of our theatres, cinemas and galleries to incorporate issues of sustainability into our content and delivery. Our building at First Street has been designed to be energy efficient and our Building Management System allows us to monitor, control and adjust energy use. As a values driven organisation, we look to ensure staff well being and engagement, and our Green Team work together to identify and implement actions to reduce energy consumption and encourage best practice in the workplace. Our staff follow a sustainable travel policy and utilise carbon-neutral travel options to help to reduce our carbon footprint and encourage health and wellbeing in the workplace. Training staff in carbon literacy has enabled us to engage with our visitors and work together to share knowledge and pledge our commitment to sustainable practices and environmental awareness at HOME and beyond.
