We are all becoming more aware of our impact on the environment and how we can reduce our carbon footprints. The Festival is no exception. We are doing everything we can to make sure that Glastonbury remains amongst the greenest and cleanest events held throughout the world.
One of major campaigns is Love the Farm, Leave No Trace. We hope that this will highlight the many issues surrounding our environment at Worthy Farm and beyond. It's an ongoing process and there is much to do, but with our stated aims and your continued support and ideas, we believe this is something we can tackle together. We are already working with groups such as AGreenerFestival.com and we have had a long association with Greenpeace, one of our Worthy Causes.
Glastonbury Festival is also working closely with Julies Bicycle to monitor and reduce the festival's carbon dioxide (CO2)emissions. Glastonbury Festival has gained its first star in the Industry Green Certification which is based on the four principles of environmental good practice: commitment, measurement, reduction of impacts and disclosure. We have been gathering and analyzing data from previous festivals to monitor the impacts associated with energy, water, waste and travel.
