HOME among national theatres supporting Theatre Green Book

HOME has joined theatres from across the country in endorsing the Theatre Green Book standard for sustainability.

HOME will be embedding Theatre Green Book principles into its existing sustainability strategy and further advocating for sustainable practices across the sector.

Created during lockdown, spearheaded by Theatres Trust, Buro Happold and ABTT and led by theatre architect Paddy Dillon, the Theatre Green Book has brought theatre-makers together with sustainability experts to set common standards for sustainable theatre.

A cross-industry partnership, uniting all the leading theatre organisations, it has helped theatre-makers think creatively about theatre’s response to the climate crisis, and define shared standards for the journey to sustainable practice.

Dave Moutrey, Director and CEO of HOME, said: “Sustainability is at the heart of how we operate at HOME, and so we warmly welcome the Theatre Green Book as a way to embed best practice across our whole sector. The climate crisis is the most important and dangerous challenge of our time, and we must all work together to safeguard the future of the planet.”

Paddy Dillon, Theatre Green Book Co-ordinator and Theatres Trust Deputy Chair, says, “The Theatre Green Book is theatre’s shared response to the climate emergency. During lockdown, theatre-makers of all disciplines have brought their expertise and knowledge to the discussion. It’s fantastic to see so many companies seizing this as a moment of real change.”
