Environmental Initiatives

How we can all get our green on at Splendour.

Be an Enviro Boss at Splendour

At Splendour, we take our responsibility to Mother Earth seriously.

So seriously that in 2019, Splendour in the Grass won a green gong at the NSW Government Green Globe Awards, an event that recognises sustainability leaders across NSW, as well as projects and events that encourage others to achieve positive change for the environment.

From encouraging you to catch the bus or share a ride, to promoting initiatives on waste reduction, BYO bottles and reusable cups, we’re always on the hunt for more ways to help keep our footprint light.

Here’s how you can help:

Tick YES to our Green Offset option when you buy your ticket.

Splendour in the Grass is back with the Green Offset – a program that delivers environmental initiatives within the beautiful northern NSW region.   We’ve hooked up with local renewable energy legends Enova Energy and COREM to help fund pioneering climate initiatives. For just $3 (including GST), please choose the Green Offset option when you purchase your Splendour in the Grass event ticket. It’s less than the price of your micro-roasted cortado and way better karma.

Our Green Offset funds have helped fund Australia’s first social benefit solar garden – a 100 solar panel solar garden on the roof of North Coast Community Housing, allowing social housing tenants and local community organisations to benefit from reduced electricity bills. Over its 20-year life span, the project will save approximately $160,000 for the solar gardeners and NCCH. How good’s solar energy!

Solar Farming

St John’s Primary School in Mullumbimby (88 panels) and Coorabell Hall (35 panels) were also part of the Green Offset contributions. Enova Energy and COREM will continue to invest Green Offset funds into more local renewable energy projects – making this one very green region! In 2020 they are working with the Arakwal people, the traditional owners of Byron Bay on an exciting new solar project.

Through this program we’re actively increasing the amount of solar in the Northern Rivers. For every 1 kilowatt of solar, that’s one kilowatt of coal-fired power that does not get produced.

Renewable energy is one of the most effective ways to reduce emissions so know that when you tick YES for the Green Offset, your dollars are supporting the green energy transition.
