Creative Industry Green is the environmental certification scheme for festivals, venues and offices.

Creative Industry Green provides you with an audit report of your environmental performance. It covers energy, waste, water and travel and an Creative Industry Green certification of 1 to 3 stars to show staff, suppliers, artists and audiences that you're committed to going green.
