Ecostage acknowledges that there can be no environmental justice without social justice by advocating holistic sustainability encompassing Wellbeing, Nature Connection and Social Justice as interconnected values.
Our sustainability policy is embedded in the Ecostage Pledge that all team members adhere to as a public commitment.
As an organisation all team members are responsible for implementing the environmental policies. We follow this in a number of ways, with all meetings and work happening online, paper-free working, offsetting any necessary travel, hosting our website on a carbon-neutral platform that plants trees and supporting local businesses when needed. Our sustainable policy reinforces the pledge points through internal quarterly reporting and annual reporting to members.
Reporting will include an assessment of our carbon footprint, along with realistic and achievable proposals for mitigation.
We keep in touch with current updates to review and monitor the policies to ensure compliance with all relevant green legislation and continually improve our sustainability performance.
By signing the pledge, the Ecostage online community is encouraged to follow the guiding principles sincerely and in good faith, with an intention of these values turning into practice – one step at a time. We have also linked this site to a wonderful selection of resources available to begin turning these values into practice.
Equality & Diversity
We are committed to improving equality, inclusion and diversity, and support LGBTQ+, BLM and other movements, inviting all voices and taking more responsibility and accountability to transform what we can in the current system that values existing unjust power structures that can hold people back such as white patriarchal supremacy that can hold people back because of gender, lack of privilege, class, race etc.
Pronouns of personal choice should be respected.
