What we’re doing now, and how we plan to do better.
Iceland Airwaves is excited to announce the launch of our sustainability pledge.
Over the past few months we have been working hard at analyzing what areas of our festival contribute to its carbon footprint and searching for ways in which we can work together in order to reduce its impact.
We have always been conscious about the environmental impact of the festival, and we know there is much more that we can do. That’s why we’ve decided to make an official commitment to sustainability and outline concrete action steps in order to make that happen. We’ve approached this project with the mantra of reduce what you can – offset what you can’t.
One thing that is very clear to us is that this is not something we can do alone. We ask our festival guests and our artists to join us in this commitment. We also encourage other music festivals to join us in trying to make music festivals more sustainable and friendly to our planet.
If you have anything you’d like to add, or a tip or suggestion please e-mail us.
We are getting rid of venues out of downtown Reykjavík, it’s important they are all walking distance from each other
We already book all our artists, speakers, and invited journalists to stay downtown.
