Green Champions Award

Green Champions Award

The unique ‘Green Champions Award’ is an accreditation to help & encourage festivals, large scale events, venues and organisations improve their environmental behaviour and, in the process, their reputation.

We cannot continue to behave as if the world has infinite resources.

The Green Champions Award is about asking organisations to embrace sustainable operating
practices and to educate their key stakeholders, be that customers, festival-goers, fans or students
and staff.  Co-ordinated by Clean Up Britain – the national anti-litter and fly-tipping organisation – the
GCA is a unique collaboration with four industry-leading partners: Event Cup Solutions, Food
Services Group, Reconomy and Zero Waste Events.

The award covers 5 specific areas:  

In the wake of COVID-19

Since Covid-19 emerged, Kantar, the leading data insights consultancy, reported that over 49% of people said that they now “actively seek out companies and brands that offer ways to offset their impact on the environment”.

John Read, Founder of Clean Up Britain, says “Quite simply, we’re asking – and helping – organisations to achieve the highest standards of environmental behaviour. In the wake of the COVID 19 crisis, we’re all even more aware of the fragile nature of our global eco-system.  There is now an acute need for organisations and individuals alike to embrace more
sustainable behaviour.  In fact, many consumers are, increasingly, demanding it.  It seems evident that the social responsibility expectation of consumers has become more demanding and discerning.  The corporate reputation of an organisation can, undoubtedly, be enhanced through transparent evidence of its sustainable environmental practices.  That’s what the Green Champions Award helps deliver”.
