Environmental Sustainability. SHIFT Eco-Guidelines for Networks

The SHIFT Eco-Guidelines for Networks recognise and address the ecological footprint associated with operating international cultural network and platform-organisations (hereafter referred to as network-organisations). The guidelines serve as a reference document for network-organisations that aim to minimise their footprint, optimise environmentally sustainable practices, and act as an example of good practice for their members and other networks. They are purposely made openly accessible in the hope they can inspire structural organisational change in the cultural sectors, in the broadest sense.

The SHIFT Eco-Guidelines, initiated by the nine SHIFT partners and created in collaboration with the Green Leisure Group and Creative Carbon Scotland, are a first step towards filling a gap in the environmental certification offer.
