Lovebox Industry Green Certification
As a direct result of Firefly's sustainability consultation Lovebox Festival have been awarded 2* status out of 3 in Julie's Bicycles Industry Green (IG) certification scheme for their 2010 event.
Lovebox was one of only two major UK festivals to achieve the 2* rating. The policies Firefly introduced helped the festival to lower its carbon footprint by 38%.
This rating was achieved by integrating renewable power sources, encouraging public transport, increasing recycling, reducing waste to landfill and introducing a sustainable procurement policy.
Both Lovebox and Firefly hope to build on this in 2011 and the environmental audit carried out by the team at this year's festival will examine how far the event has progressed.
In addition to the onsite environmental audit Firefly were also awarded the technical production contract for the fringe venues providing our solar generators to power the Circus Kinetica bandstand.
