Hampshire Cultural Trust believes that culture can play a key role in tackling one of the biggest issues facing our planet: climate change.  

Our environmental policy supports the scientific community’s assessment that urgent climate action is required. Hampshire Cultural Trust also actively supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) agenda to set the world on a path to a sustainable future by 2030.  

We are committed to protecting the environment and are continually seeking ways of improving the environmental performance of our activities. We will promote climate action by engaging our stakeholders, staff, volunteers, visitors, audiences and communities.   

Hampshire Cultural Trust is committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. Meeting this target will be challenging and will rely in part on collaborative action with our local authority partners, but we will work hard towards achieving it. We are also committed to maximising engagement opportunities for promoting climate action.  

In order to achieve these aims, we will:

  • Position sustainability as integral to our mission and purpose  

  •  Reduce our energy, our emissions, our waste and our water consumption  

  •  Measure and report on our carbon impacts  

  •  Preserve and promote biodiversity in our outdoor spaces  

  •  Encourage and adopt sustainable travel options  

  •  Embed sustainable procurement in our purchasing policy  

  • Establish a programming commitment to engage our visitors and audiences in climate action 

  • Celebrate environmental successes and achieve environmental management certification  

  • Engage with our sector, stakeholders, staff and volunteers for climate advocacy 

Our policy is endorsed at board level and is reviewed annually to ensure its ongoing suitability for our environmental commitments and forms part of our ongoing work to ensure we are in line with best practice.
