Green Book working group

This new working group is for organisations who want to work through implementation of the Arts Green Book and Theatre Green Book alongside other organisations, with support from SAIL. As part of the working group, we will discuss:

  • Conducting a home survey using the Home Survey tool
  • Energy reduction strategies
  • Collection and interpretation of data
  • Challenges and lessons learned
  • Anything else we discover as a group!


We are currently planning to have a meeting of the working group once every 2 months, but we can adjust the frequency once we get going
