The LIVE Green award, sponsored by Ecotricity – the world’s first green energy company, is dedicated to those organisations working to make live venues, performances and events in the UK more sustainable

Claire O’Neill, AGF CEO said;

“Thank you so much to LIVE Awards for making AGF the winner of the inaugural LIVE Green Award. We’re over the moon and big up to the whole #AGF team, our assessors, and everyone who has supported and worked with us for a greener live sector over the many years since we began.”

“After nearly 2 decades dedicated to greening the live industry we’re so happy to receive this award, not only as recognition for our work, but also as another sign that the live music sector values sustainability and is now taking it seriously.”
