About This Website
The site is divided into sections looking at areas where festivals organisers and their audience can make a difference.
We know that not every festival can adopt every idea – although the original research for this site showed that some festivals have no environmental policies at all!
But even tackling just one area – whether it’s having a coherent waste recycling plan or having policies to promote the use of public transport or to minimise land damage – will help.
Please keep in touch with us! You can email us here if you have any thoughts, comments, or anything you’d like to share or see on the site.
A Greener Festival Award was set up in 2007 and has been growing each year. For a very small fee to cover our expenses, A Greener Festival will send an auditor to your festival to assess what measures you are taking to make your festival as green as possible.
Aside from the publicity gained from being part of the awards scheme, our award sponsors, Robertson Taylor, offer insurance discounts for festivals with the Greener Festival Award.
See our AGF Award page to download your self assessment form and get started.
