A Greener Festival (AGF) has won the Green Apple Environment Award from 500 entries in the international campaign to find the greenest companies, councils and communities.
AGF is a not for profit organisation committed to helping festivals and events to minimise their environmental impact around the world. Over the last decade it has assessed and accredited more than 400 festivals worldwide including Glastonbury Festival (UK), Roskilde Festival (DK), Bonnaroo (US) and Falls Festival (AU). It has also delivered sustainable event training for professionals all over Europe, and on 6 March in London will deliver the 10th Green Events and Innovations Conference in partnership with the International Live Music Conference. In addition, last year AGF launched the Greener Event Award to assess, advise and accredit events of all kinds.
A Greener Festival co-founder Claire O’Neill said, “We are over the moon to receive this prestigious award and are humbled that we were chosen as a winner. Huge thanks go to all our assessors, supporters, and the events we have worked with.”
The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries.
