Julie’s Bicycle is very pleased to be partnering again with Arts Council England to deliver their Environmental Programme to the National Portfolio Organisations 2018-22.

Arts Council’s Environmental Programme, which began in 2012, is designed to support and stretch the ambition of their arts and culture portfolio. Latest results, captured in our Sustaining Great Art Report show progressive and positive change.

Here are some relevant deadlines NPOs have to keep in mind relating the environmental reporting requirements:

  • 9th February 2018 – All NPOs must decide with their RMs on the environmental impacts they will report on, so these can be included in the funding agreements.
  • 1st April 2018 – NPOs must sign up to the IG Tools and upload their environmental policies and action plans.
  • 1st April – 31st May 2019/20/21/22 - NPOs to report on impacts and submit their Environmental Policy and Action Plan via the IG Tools.

As per the above, all NPOs involved in the 2018-22 portfolio need to determine by the 20th of February 2018 the environmental impacts they will be reporting on. We have created specific guidance to support you through identifying those areas of impact:
