The ALPD is an organisation with Environmental Sustainability at its heart. We acknowledge that we are in the midst of a climate emergency. 

Our art uses many elements and resources that are at the heart of the sustainability debate. We believe for our industry to continue to thrive we must acknowledge that the way we work has to change. 


Our Sustainability Working group are a committed team working with co-chairs Paule Constable and Tom Lightbody towards a more sustainable lighting industry.

We are currently working on a new ALPD Green Guide and Code of Practice which can be found here when completed.


If you are interested in joining the group, have any questions around sustainability in your practice, or just want to find out more please email



We are also in the process of compiling a series of references and resources, but in the meantime we encourage all our members, and everyone in the live performance industry, to read and engage with the new Theatre Green Book, the first "industry standard" for sustainability.
