What We Do

Environmental Engagement

The Scottish Government has set a target of cutting Co2 emissions by 42% by 2020 and by 80% by 2050. It encourages all public bodies to set their own targets to help achieve this national aim through mitigation, adaptation and acting sustainably.

Puppet Animation Scotland strives to operate in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner, developing systems to measure and reduce our environmental impacts and applying them as rigorously as possible to all our programmes and activities. We aim to minimise the environmental impact of our activities while maximise their benefit to the audiences we cater for and the artists we work with.

Our Creative Scotland funding obligations require us to monitor and plan to reduce our carbon emissions. More importantly, the reduction of carbon consumption helps improve efficiency and save money and materials. It’s also the right thing to do, given the current depletion of the world’s finite resources.



  • Advocate passionately for environmentally sustainable behaviours among the all the many Scottish-based, UK and international individuals, venues and organisations we work with and support
  • Collaborate practically with ethically-run organisations who share our environmental commitment and concerns, to promote greater awareness and action
  • Record regularly the details of our carbon consumption and take practical, progressive steps to reduce further our current carbon footprint
  • Report annually on our carbon usage and our strategies to mitigate our consumption to demonstrate how we contribute practically to an environmentally aware and sustainable Scotland

Puppet Animation Scotland is a committed and active member of Creative Carbon Scotland. If you would like to know more about how we mitigate the environmental impact of our activities, please contact our Green Champion: info@puppetanimation.org
