Embed sustainability

We offer 1 to 3 year sustainability programmes tailored to your needs or you can do an individual service. Whether you are at an early stage in your sustainability journey or at an advance stage, we will create a programme of activities that inspires and catalyses lasting environmental change in your organisation or network.

A core package of activities organisations find highly beneficial – environmental policy development; action planning and implementation support; plus, staff training and engagement activities.

Current Projects

We work to deeply embed environmental sustainability into the core values and actions of an organisation through our Creative Green framework. Once organisations begin their journey with JB, appetite grows to build sustainability into their organisational resilience. We offer multi-year service packages to support organisations and networks on their journey.

Hear from organisations we’ve worked with:

Working with Julie’s Bicycle has given us the support and guidance to re-imagine our environmental strategy and its implementation across the National Theatre. We are committed to firmly embedding sustainable values at the heart of our working culture and creative practice and are excited by our ongoing relationship with Julie’s Bicycle and their pioneering work in the creative industries.

– Lisa Burger, Executive Director, National Theatre

Julie’s Bicycle understood our aims to benchmark our current position on sustainability performance across a varied range of event types and deliver training and skills development to Council officers. We really appreciated their flexibility in delivering a programme that met our needs and adapted to our changing requirements. JB’s expertise in sustainable events really helped us to assess where we fit in the bigger picture and what we need to do to continually improve.

“Peer support and knowledge exchange have had a phenomenal impact as we recognise that, if we help each other with the questions, we can come up with far more creative solutions.”
