The GREENER FESTIVAL AWARD is based around the twin aims of promoting greener practices and promoting sustainability.
It will be available to any festival which can meet the requirements of a fifty six question check list and commit to an ‘A – Z’ of green priorities. AGreenerFestival also have a team of independent environmental auditors to visit festivals in the UK and around the world to check on participating festival’s progress.
AGreenerFestival.com has been at the centre of the movement for environmental considerate music events since its launch in 2006. Their work has included contributions to special features in The Times, Independent and industry magazine IQ, a seminar at the International Live Music Conference, a partnership with the UK Festival Awards and work with the European Festival Organisers Association to promote best practice within the industry.
