Each year, The Arts Council team up with Julie’s Bicycle to produce our Environmental Responsibility Annual Report, which celebrates the successes of creative and cultural organisations in acting on national and international climate targets.

Report highlights include:

  • 94% of organisations include environmental sustainability in core business strategies
  • 60% of our portfolio include environmental sustainability in their artistic/production briefs and open calls
  • 20% reduction in energy use across the portfolio from 2018/19 to 22/23
  • Ten-year downward trend – the average emissions reported per organisation have reduced by 50% since environmental reporting began in
  • 2012 (indicative using various assumptions).
