What is Depot Cinema Lewes doing to support nature and sustainable practices in the biosphere?
At Depot we are strongly aware of the environmental impact of running our venue and we are committed to working towards long term solutions. We recognise that action is needed now to achieve the aims of the UN Paris Agreement. We are committed to applying Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) across the organisation to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius and to pursue efforts to limit the temperature increase even further to 1.5 degrees Celsius by 2030. We believe that our strengths and ability to create the most impact lie in focusing our efforts on the below five SDGs to minimise our negative impacts and maximising our positive impacts.
We are really proud to be committed to sustainability from an environmental and social perspective.
We have invested in infrastructure to reduce our carbon emissions:
- A ground source heat pump
- 100% renewable sources for all our other power needs
We have invested in a living roof at the cinema which is good for insulation and attracts a wide range of wildlife – for example bees and butterflies. We have many local downland species of plants thriving on our roof.
