Right from the birth of Splendour's long and illustrious career, putting in place environmental programs that reduce the festival's impacts has been a key priority. With the ongoing participation of our very loyal and switched on fans Splendour in the Grass has kicked some amazing green goals. We now have an enviable track record in reducing and offsetting carbon emissions across the production of the festival and also emissions from audience travel. In fact last 8,000 of our fans opted to purchase a Carbon Offset Ticket to neutralise part or all of their travel emissions to and from the show. Over the past 4 years this one Splendour specific program has offset over 2,814 tonnes of carbon and resulted in $85,600 being invested in renewable wind energy generation. For an annual event this is a remarkable outcome.
As our audience members are well aware we also have a host of other programs including waste and recycling initiatives, our now infamous Eco Cops, green procurement policies and strict bans on certain types of unsustainable packaging.
To help Splendour maintain its solid environmental track record we encourage you to check out the all of our environmental links above and learn how you can help keep the grass green.
