The awards will take place at Curzon Bloomsbury on Monday 1st July 2019, as part of the Mayor of London’s inaugural London Climate Action Week. Featuring a keynote by leading international eco-lawyer Farhana Yamin, contributions from climate champions across the sector and hosted by spoken word artist and Barbican Young Poet Amani Saeed, this promises to be a provocative and inspiring evening.

With the magnitude of the climate emergency now finally reaching the mainstream, our Creative Green programme frames the actions that each and every UK cultural organisation can take, right now, within the climate battle to drastically reduce their carbon footprint and drive change across the sector. With over 300 Creative Green certificates awarded, the awards are a moment for the sector to showcase their leadership in climate action.

About Creative Green

Creative Green is a programme of Julie’s Bicycle that offers a broad range of services that help organisations scope, understand, prioritise and advocate environmentally sustainable practices. A core part of this programme is the Creative Green certification scheme, which enables organisations to begin their sustainability journey to demonstrate best practice and leadership. The certification is a framework for sustainability action, representing a community of pioneering cultural organisations driving change. With over 300 certificates awarded since its launch in 2009, Creative Green remains the only environmental certification designed specifically for the creative and cultural sector. It supports organisations’ environmental impact reductions through its three strands: Commitment, Understanding and Improvement. Points are accrued within each strand and a one to five star certification is awarded based on the total number gained.
