can the national theatre reduce and expand?

The National Theatre set itself a target: over three years, it would reduce its consumption of gas and electricity by 20%. At the same time, it would continue to expand its activities.

Like other institutions, the National made quick progress with ‘low-hanging fruit’: the deal with Philips, who provided the Vidiwall and the LED lighting, almost single-handedly slashed the electricity consumption. But there’s a moment when the light bulbs have been changed and the staff are recycling when most of the ‘easy wins’ have been made. It’s hard then not to hit some barriers

What steps did the National take next? My piece on 'A Greener National Theatre' appears here.
