Opera House makes sustainability pledge
The Opera House wants to be a global leader in sustainability and inspire “positive change” in other organisations.
- The venue has signed up to the UN’s sustainable development goals, 17 measures that include climate action, minimising waste and ending inequality.
- Measures include equal opportunity, land and sea conservation, responsible consumption, and education on climate action.
- CEO Louise Herron said being a signatory to the UN goals did not impose external obligations on the Opera House and there was no additional cost: “It doesn’t impose third-party obligations, but it does impose a moral leadership and accountability commitment”
