Green Adventures, the company’s environmental sustainability strand, was launched in July 2018. Since then, we have been making changes in all areas of the company and engaging with our venue partners and audiences around sustainability.
Our achievements include:
• Winning the Creative Green Pioneer Award in 2018
• Piloting a new Creative Green certification for the touring sector on our 2018-19 UK tour of Swan Lake, for which we have been awarded a four-star rating
“New Adventures is proud to have piloted the first Creative Green certification for the touring sector and I am delighted that our efforts and achievements have been recognised with a four-star rating. There is still so much more we can do, as a company and within our industry, to address the climate emergency and we will continue to explore ways to be greener in all areas of our company.” — Matthew Bourne, Artistic Director, New Adventures
New Adventures, Sadler’s Wells and Norwich Theatre Royal have been collaborating on the creation of a new model for environmentally sustainable touring through exploring joint green initiatives between visiting companies and presenting theatres. This work is supported by the Accelerator Programme, run by environmental charity Julie’s Bicycle in partnership with Arts Council England to advance sustainable practice among arts organisations.
We're proud to share that our Head of Operations, Louise Allen, was interviewed by Jacqueline Haxton from the Arts Marketing Association talking about New Adventures Green Touring, and Rebecca Moorland from Sightline, the Association of British Theatre Technicians online magazine.
