A Greener Festival

The A Greener Festival organisation has announced the festivals and other events that have earned themselves one of the group’s awards for their 2017 activities.

A Greener Festival assesses participating music festivals – and now other events too – according to a variety of criteria to assess just how environmentally friendly and sustainable they are. Those festivals that meet the standards set out by the A Greener Festival team are then recognised for their work. That recognition occurred during the Eurosonic showcase festival in the Netherlands yesterday.

Commenting on this year’s awards, A Greener Festival Co-Founder Claire O’Neill said: “We are extremely proud of the winners of the Greener Festival and Greener Events awards. They have to meet very strict criteria to be awarded, and their actions and passion for sustainability set them aside as the future of festivals and events in the industry. There’s always further to go, and these winners are paving the way for the benefit of us all”.
