Endorsement of SiPA's sustainability at PLASA 2015

20th October 2015

Claire Appleby, Architecture Adviser of The Theatres Trust has been quoted in LSi Online.

Ten goals which aim to inspire a decade of sustainable culture change within live production were launched at the industry’s flagship showcase and networking event PLASA London on 4 October 2015 by The Sustainability in Production Alliance (SiPA).

In an impassioned endorsement of the SiPA goals, which she described as “a call to arms”, multi award-winning international lighting designer Paule Constable said: “It’s an opportunity for us to define the terms under which we make our work. Don’t be the outsider… make people who think these issues are not a concern of the outsiders. We need CEOs, artistic and executive directors to believe in the SiPA goals as much as anyone on the shop floor. Change has to be believed in from above.”

Claire Appleby of The Theatres Trust, a supporter of the creation of the SiPA goals, added: “Through working together, as an alliance, we’re stronger. We can bring about change. SiPA is a movement with momentum and with it we can achieve a green economy and a fairer future.”
