Environmental Responsibility

The World Weather Network is a global coalition of 28 arts agencies around the world formed in response to the climate crisis and biodiversity loss. The Network recognises the climate emergency as the most urgent issue of our time. 

As independent organisations we are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our work; as a collective we are committed to learning from each other and from the wider international arts community, as well as other sectors engaged in environmental practice.

All agencies in the World Weather Network aim to:

  • Promote art that enables audiences to gain a better understanding of the climate crisis, including multiple geographic and cultural perspectives;
  • Monitor the carbon footprint of their operations and impact on biodiversity;
  • Reduce the atmospheric emissions generated by their travel, transportation, energy consumption, catering, purchases and waste management, and by offsetting remaining emissions;
  • Choose services that are as environment-friendly as possible and develop environment-friendly operating models with their partners.

We acknowledge that we are all at different stages on our journeys towards environmental sustainability; we will not always get things right, but inspired by best practice, we will listen, learn, and improve.
