It’s not all about numbers. As part of our sustainability strategy, it’s imperative that we engage with our stakeholders about how they can help us reduce our environmental impact. This is a huge and diverse group, including our studio holders, our gallery visitors, the schools we work with and so on. Engaging with them all is a fairly daunting prospect, so we decided to start by focusing on the staff, with the aim of getting more ambitious as our confidence grows.
So last week we launched our inaugural Energy Awareness Campaign. From now until December, the Bow Arts Green Team will be organising a series of events to promote energy awareness amongst our team and hopefully motivate and empower them to take action to reduce their carbon footprint. Planned well, an energy awareness campaign can be a fantastic way to engage staff; the Carbon Trusthave produced a really useful resource on approaching one here.
Communal meals are always a great occasion at Bow Arts, so we kicked off the campaign with a delicious staff lunch, full of homemade veggie treats. Over food, we talked about the Green Team’s progress to date and how the campaign would look as well as welcoming input and ideas from all members of staff and departments.
We’ve got loads coming up over the next couple of months, so watch this space to learn of our progress…
