Theatre MK-Alpha is committed to producing first class performance, critical and cultural outputs that meet with its local, regional and international roles. At the same time, MK-Alpha is committed to making work that is sustainable and aims to minimise the environmental impacts of its operations. MK-Alpha actively engages with issues associated with sustainability and climate change as a matter of course within its day-to-day operations; and in the process and – ultimately – content, of the work.

To fulfil this social and environmental commitment MK-Alpha will:

  •   Meet and, where possible, exceed all current and future leading international, Australian and – where relevant – regional environmental legislative and regulatory requirements.
  •   Adopt best operational practices to reduce environmental impacts of MK-Alpha activities and policies.
  •   Measure and take action to reduce the carbon footprint of our activities and ensure our services are able to adapt to environmental change.
  •   Monitor, manage and minimise MK-Alpha’s use of energy and water.
  •   Minimise the environmental impact of associated travel with our venues and business.
  •   Minimise the amount of waste produced by MK-Alpha, its partners and to encourage greater reuse and recycling.
  •   Ensure environmental, including climate change, criteria are taken into account in the procurement of goods and services.
  •   Consider environmental factors in MK-Alpha’s decisions and activities including giving due consideration to environmental issues and energy performance in the design of scenographic materials.
  •   Encourage and develop our employees, volunteers, partners and stakeholders to conduct their activities in an environmentally responsible manner.

To ensure we meet our commitments, we undertake to periodically monitor and review our environmental performance as part of our ongoing production processes and take corrective action where necessary.  This policy will be reviewed annually.
