About

Our venue is run by Future Yard CIC – a non-profit focused on delivering Future Yard’s positive social and environmental impact, alongside realising our creative vision. As an organisation, we have committed to a long-term goal of becoming the first carbon-neutral grassroots music venue in the North of England, and one of the first in the UK.Working in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University’s Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory, we have been shaping the long-term design of the building, its energy consumption and developing a range of policies in how the venue operates to achieve this goal.You will find no single-use plastic stocked on our bars or on our artist riders.In 2022 we published a Sustainability Roadmap for the venue, in partnership with LJMUs Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory, to assess our impact on the environment and lay out ways in which we can reduce our carbon footprint and help achieve a more sustainable live music industry.“We all have a responsibility to the environment,” says Future Yard CIC Director, Craig Pennington. “The touring live music industry has an acute sustainability problem. We are committed to ensuring that we create a place that has a net positive environmental impact, one that fundamentally takes carbon out of the atmosphere and plastic out of our oceans, not one that adds to the problem.”Dr Ariel Edesess of LJMU’s Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory said; “By setting a standard of zero carbon in music and culture, we can send a message that this is something every one of us can contribute to – and have fun at the same time! Whilst it is no doubt a challenge for a music venue to be fully carbon neutral, by setting this mandate right from the start and learning how to achieve this, Future Yard is changing the standards and leading the way as we all navigate this new normal.”Dr Simon Tucker, Senior Lecturer in Environmental Design at the Liverpool School of Art and Design, added; “We will look closely at all aspects of the venue and its operations, both the building itself and its systems, and how it is occupied and used now and in the future. We will assess and propose a range of approaches and options for achieving carbon neutrality in support of the aims of Future Yard.”
