Sustainability in action at Déda
Déda is completely dedicated to ensuring our activities have as small an impact on the planet as possible. From our dance activities to our café bar we have schemes in place that really make a difference. In 2023 we will have installed secondary glazing, started a renewable energy project and have introduced a menu that is 100% plant based with an option to add animal products. Our fabulous Green Guardians champion our environmental action plan, raise awareness and enforce policy. So whether you are visitor, contractor or customer we have options to help you reduce ours and your environmental impact at every visit.
At Déda our decisions not only take into account the best value for money or the highest cultural outputs, but also the social impact. For instance we have changed our cleaning company to Upbeat Clean, an ethical cleaning company that provides real life changing employment opportunities. A charity supporting other charities is a great way of maximising charitable donations for doing good.
Like Upbeat Clean, Déda is an equal opportunities employer and does not discriminate on the grounds of gender, sexual orientation, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, gender reassignment, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, disability or age.
Reacting to social needs - at Déda we support local communities with immediate needs. As the energy crisis is impacting on all our people, we have created a an holistic approach to our offer, that not only supports people, but the environment too. See this news article as an example of what we can do.
We are passionate about Derby and support local audiences, artists, partner organisations, services and ethical suppliers when we can.
We can help other organisations with their sustainability policies and responsibilities, see our Corporate Opportunities page to find out how.
