Sydney Opera House Joins CitySwitch Green Office
CitySwitch Green Office is a growing national partnership between businesses and local government acting as environmental leaders. The program works with office tenants committed to improving energy efficiency to make a positive impact on climate change. CitySwitch Green Office program will help us measure and improve the environmental performance of our offsite office tenancies for Sydney Opera House staff. Although our rented tenancies are a small part of Sydney Opera House’s overall energy use, we recognise that every little bit helps. We are delighted to be a part of this program and to work with City of Sydney towards a Sustainable 2030.
Sydney Opera House launches our first Environmental Sustainability Policy & Plan
Sydney Opera House is excited to introduce our first Environmental Sustainability Policy and Plan and invite you to read them. It is a three year blueprint towards our long term vision to be a global leader in sustainable performing arts centres. The Policy and Plan were shaped by our staff and partners and it is clear that they all realise the importance and value of incorporating environmental sustainability in everything we do.
The launch of the first SOH Environmental Sustainability Plan was held on 10 June 2010. Staff, resident companies, food & beverage partners and contractors listened to guest speakers and the SOH team, who gave a context and an overview to the Environmental Sustainability Plan.
Our Environmental Sustainability Policy sets out our high level commitment to reducing our environmental impact.
Our Environmental Sustainability Plan outlines what we will do for the next 3 years. The ESP is not just good intentions. We have set 11 targets to meet by 2013 and we intend to meet them. We will be open about what we have done and what we have achieved.
We acknowledge that we are at the start of this journey. We look forward to growing, and sharing it with you on the way.
