Environment

Depot is strongly aware of the environmental impact of running our venue and is committed to working towards long term solutions. We believe in contributing more than we take out. We recognise that action is needed now to achieve the aims of the UN Paris Agreement. We are committed to applying Sustainable Develop Goals across the organisation to limit global warming to below 2°C.

We aim to be an exemplar of sustainable business both as a local venue and in the wider cinema industry.

We placed sustainability at the top of the agenda at the point of design with priority given to using sustainable energy sources and environmentally responsible principles to achieve the lowest possible environmental impact. We were able to start on great footing. Now firmly rooted and operational we intend to keep our carbon footprint as low as possible through sound practises across all aspects of the organisation.
