Dunedin Consort’s mission statement, vision and values commit us to giving an excellent experience to all our audiences, in Scotland, the rest of the UK and internationally. We work with the best international musicians: we offer opportunities to perform in an expanding range of places, and our broad audience base in turn benefits from their creativity, spontaneity and infectious commitment to their art.
With the profile of engagements we are building comes the challenge of how to ensure that we demonstrate practical concern for the environment. We are committed to monitoring, publishing and reducing our annual carbon output; to arranging our programmes and our travel in ways that are environmentally responsible; to reducing air travel wherever possible; to establishing a Climate Costs Fund to help us meet our targets; and to managing our business operations in accordance with best practice.
Our Environmental Policy
Conducting our business in a sustainable way requires a range of measures, from large to small, and the commitment of the whole organisation — staff, players, board and supporters. Our environmental policy details the steps that we are taking to reduce our carbon output and to manage our activities in a sustainable and responsible way. From reducing single use plastics in the office and rehearsal space, to touring by public transport and investing in carbon off-setting, we hope that the steps we take together will set a precedent within the sector, and help to ensure our work can continue in a sustainable way for years to come.
