Towards Zero Waste Festivals report: Overcoming current challenges in sustainable waste management at UK greenfield events (March 2023).

The annual Outdoor Event Industry Green Survey, published by Vision:2025 since 2015, has consistently shown that, though festival organisers are motivated to prioritise waste management and reduction, they face common challenges. This has led Vision: 2025 to focus on this topic to support improved understanding and efficiency of waste management practices at events.

Resource Futures, a national waste and resources consultancy, was commissioned in 2022 by Vision:2025 and Julie’s Bicycle to help understand the challenges and opportunities for sustainable waste management at UK greenfield festivals, and provide solutions-focused recommendations for events and the industry.

The report is the result of a literature review, in-depth stakeholder interviews, specialist knowledge from Resource Futures, and input from an industry working group
