Established 30 years ago we are one of the leading creative and technical production companies delivering for live events and shows globally. We provide the best in-house equipment and out-of-the-box thinking underpinned by our 100-strong expert team.

At Eclipse we take our responsibility to conduct our business in a way that will minimise any adverse effect on the environment seriously.

In order to achieve this we ensure that we use appropriate environmental practices in our day to day operations, from the use of materials from sustainable sources to recycling of used material from site.

As a member of AV Alliance we partner with them to further reduce the environmental impact of transportation to European locations, however where this is not possible as a CO2e Accessed Company we offer a carbon offsetting service. Using a pre- calculated rate per tonne of CO2 from our assessment by an environmental consultant at Carbon Footprint Ltd, to invest in re-forestation projects, Eclipse offer a donation of £1 per £2500 as charged.

To achieve our goal of being working Carbon Neutral by 2030, we have set out targets and working practises that are believed to support our aim.
