We’re delighted to announce that Glastonbury has been Highly Commended in the A Greener Festival 2014 Awards, by the environmental campaign and advice group A Greener Festival.
Festivals that apply for the scheme must prove to the judges that the festival has meaningful and effective environmental policies and practices to deal with traffic and transport, greenhouse gas emissions, waste and recycling, water conservation, noise pollution, ethical policies and environmental protection. The festivals should also have sustainable office policies. Each event is inspected by one or more independent environmental assessors. The festivals are also invited to provide supporting evidence such as environmental policies, waste management plans, analysis of CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions.
