A Greener Festival Award was set up in 2007 and since assessed nearly 500 events across 5 continents, from 500 to 200,000 daily capacity. AGF provide the first and only sustainable event certification which includes on site assessment and independent verification. Through self assessment, site visit assessment and post event analysis across 11 categories, we provide thorough and useful analysis, insight and credentials for your events sustainability actions.
Aside from the publicity gained from being part of the awards scheme, the process ensures that events complete an Environmental Impact Assessment to understand, set targets, monitor and improve environmental performance. The award gives independent verification and authenticity to “green” claims, avoiding the risk of greenwash. This is beneficial not only for our environment and the industry as a whole, but also sets events at competitive advantage to those who don’t grasp this vital knowledge.
