We are committed to embedding environmental sustainability at the heart of National Theatre’s practice - making the very best theatre to inspire generations to come.
Climate change and environmental loss are some of the greatest issues facing humankind today. Urgent and ambitious action is required across all sectors of society in order to address these issues and ensure a better, more equitable future. We are committed to embedding environmental thinking in all activity, from creative programmes and audience communication, to our choice of materials and services and our on-site operations.
Providing world-class theatre carries an environmental impact, but at the National Theatre we aim to inspire our community to action, amplifying best practice and building a sustainable working culture. Continuing our long tradition of open and collaborative working, we are actively contributing to the growing network of organisations working toward the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to no more than 2°C. We believe this model of sustainable development will ensure National Theatre remains an innovative and resilient cultural venue, galvanizing the sector and contributing to the health and prosperity of society as a whole.
