The Old Vic awarded a 3 star Creative Green rating


We’re really pleased to have been awarded a 3 star Creative Green rating by Julie’s Bicycle, in recognition of our commitment and achievement in embedding environmental sustainability into our operations and activities  – no mean feat for a 199 year-old listed building!

We’ve made improvements right across the organisation and have a dedicated green team made up of staff members from many different departments. You now get 10% off in Penny if you use a reusable cup, we don’t offer plastic water cups and have switched to using ‘veg-ware‘, which is biodegradable within 12 months and can be recycled normally. Did you also know that our light installation in the stairwell only uses LED lights?

This is our second Creative Green certification. Creative Green was developed by Julie’s Bicycle to recognise environmental commitment and achievement in the creative sector – you can see who else is certified here. Scoring is based on your commitment, understanding and improvements in environmental sustainability and looks at your energy use and emissions, as well as water use and waste levels.
