The sustainability rider
All flights should be as sustainable as possible. In addition to seeking out renewable fuel options, organisers should favor direct connections without stopovers and offset emissions through certified compensation programs.
Ground transport for artists should be arranged as sustainably as possible. In reducing emissions, all solutions are encouraged: traditional fuels can be replaced with renewables, and electric vehicles can be considered.
Refreshments & food
Single-use plastics must be kept at a minimum, and venues should favor recyclable packaging materials. Vendors should be encouraged to offer food with minimal carbon footprint, such as meals cooked from leftovers or vegetarian and vegan options.
Single-use plastic bottles should be avoided if possible. If used, bottles should be recyclable.
The venue should be powered with as small a carbon footprint as possible. Green energy and renewable fuels are preferable.
The event should generate little to no waste that ends up in a landfill. Venues must have a recycling plan in place.
