We have a vision to be the most sustainable major performing arts festival in Australia.
For some years we have been working towards making Sydney Festival a more sustainable event. But the 2016 Festival sees us take a much more serious step to achieve this. We have made a commitment towards fully understanding our impact and identifying ways to minimise the negative and maximise the positive environmental, social and economic legacies of Sydney Festival.
Meeting our vision
With an estimated audience of 650 000, over 30 venues with performances by over 1000 artists from Australia and abroad, the impact of resource consumption, waste creation, transportation, and greenhouse gas emissions is considerable.
In collaboration with our artists, venues, suppliers, staff, crew, volunteers and, importantly, with our audience together we can meaningfully reduce our resource consumption, waste creation, and our greenhouse gas emissions, so that together we meet our vision for a truly Sustainable Sydney Festival.
We will be enlisting your help to reduce our impact because; we believe that together we really can make a difference.
