The viability of cities in the future will depend on whether they can offer facilities and opportunities for residents whilst maintaining a sufficiently low environmental impact. Cities encompass more than just buildings; they are complex organisms comprised of layers of social, economic, political, environmental and cultural systems. Taking this complexity into account will benefit attempts to implement reductions of CO2 emissions. An approach to this challenge is explored through a case study of a music venue with an integral community centre. A short review is provided defining carbon neutrality and examining current work towards reducing emissions in the music industry. The development of a methodology is described and results of modelling the venue’s total CO2 emissions from Scope 1, 2 and 3 activities are given. Options for refurbishment and renewable energy systems are compared with emissions from the wider organisational activities of staff and audience travel, and proposals for emissions reductions are discussed. This work is being used to formulate a roadmap for the organisation to reach its goal of carbon neutrality. The approach described aims to provide a model for organisations seeking to reduce emissions, thereby allowing them to contribute more positively to the future of their cities.
