Liverpool Everyman seeks to achieve Net Zero Carbon Status
Charcoalblue is proud to have partnered with the Zero Carbon Research Institute at the University of Liverpool to develop a database tool that evaluates the embodied carbon of UK theatres.
The Liverpool Everyman Theatre is the first venue to use this data to help them achieve Net Zero Carbon. Our CSR team have volunteered time and resources for this important initiative, as part of our vision to positively impact our environment
Chris Dales, Kathryn Nolan, Elena Giakoumaki and Andy Hayles worked with Dr Stephen Finnegan of ZCRI and Mark Da Vanzo of the Everyman Playhouse alongside architects Howarth Tompkins to provide a complete picture all materials used in the refurbishment of the theatre in 2014, and their individual impact on the new building’s embodied energy. The team was able to determine the Everyman’s embodied carbon with the information gathered, which ZCRI have now laid out in a comprehensive report. Charcoalblue looks forward to continuing this relationship with the University of Liverpool to understand more about how material choice impacts a theatre building’s desire to become zero carbon.
