Theatre Green Book - Sustainable Buildings

The second volume of the Theatre Green Book has now been published, looking at how to make our theatres more sustainable.

Sustainable Buildings is designed for executive directors and facilities managers, for boards, funders, local authorities and designers – for anyone who faces the challenge of taking a theatre building and making it fit for purpose in the context of the climate emergency.

If we want theatre to point society towards a sustainable future, then we urgently need to regenerate our theatres to suit a world of life-threatening temperature rise, over-exploited resources, and declining biodiversity.

That journey will never be easy – theatre owners know how hard it is to raise funds for investment. But it is essential. Sustainable Buildings gives theatre clear standards for assessing the challenge, selecting priorities – and setting out on the journey.

Sustainable Buildings is available now in Beta version from the Theatre Green Book website.

The Home Survey Tool, which works alongside the Sustainable Buildings volume and allows theatre managers to develop a Sustainability Plan for their building is currently being trialled and will be made available as soon as possible
