AGF (A Greener Festival), an international non-profit association, made known the 37 beneficiaries of “A Greener Festival Award” in 2019. Festivals and events (hosted by 15 countries) that embraced eco-friendly practices and adopted sustainable working methods for alleviating impacts on the environment bagged the awards. Organisations that participated in the events had demonstrated their loyalty to sustainability applications and eco-friendly practices.
Most of the establishments that took part in these award-winning events promoted and championed green practices in strategic areas such as water, power, transport, ecosystems and waste.
Festivals and events that had sent in their applications for the “A Greener Festival Award” had to effectively fulfil the parameters specified by AGF for maintaining environmental sustainability. In other words, the applicants had to offer circumstantial evidence that they were taking measures to sustain the ecological balance at the event or festival, to be eligible for the award.
AGF employees and representatives visited every applicant’s venue to meticulously assess the event or festival. The assessors also conducted post-event assessment of the festivals and visited sites to get a fair idea of their sustainability efforts and actions. The participating events took several steps that demonstrated their commitment to global environment sustainability.
A few steps that participants took involved all-embracing community reach, adoption of robust social policies, and utilisation of composting toilets. Other key efforts towards sustainability included reducing plastics use, using low carbon transportation, promoting ethically-sourced and seasonal foods, use of smart materials, and smart applications of materials. At the same time, the participants went out of the way to address and advocate the environmental challenges to the visitors.
The awards ceremony was held on 17th January 2020 in the Netherlands at Eurosonic Noorderslag. The trophies handed over to the winners were handcrafted out of recycled materials including tents recovered from event campsites and wood retrieved from construction sites. All the winners will be eligible for participating in the IGF (International Greener Festival) Awards that will be held in London on 3rd March 2020.

The Carryway operation was run very professionally and smoothly and to a very high standard. Their knowledge and attention to detail with the complicated planning and logistics involved were exceptional; they were a pleasure to deal with and I can highly recommend their services.
It has been a delight to deal with Carryway, who were our Official Golf Buggy Supplier for The 2019 Solheim Cup. They combine efficient logistics with a professional approach to every aspect of delivery, and the equipment our event benefited from was both functional and stylish. A big thank you to a wonderful Partner.
The Carryway buggy was a lifesaver – and that’s no exaggeration! We were racing in the Aston Martin Le Mans Festival, which is a 45 mins support race just before the start for the big 24hr race. Our garages were about 2km away so getting all our gear to/from the pitlane for the race was made so simple because of the buggy! And it would have taken (the team) ages to get there and back! We are enormously proud of our new buggy and the livery made for it. It helps us stand out and helps raise our profile, not to mention being an essential team donkey.”
Thank you Carryway for supplying the buggy for us at Chatsworth this year. All went well and no issues at all – it was a definite improvement on the equipment supplied last year by a different company. Happy to use you again for next year .
Thank you for the excellent customer service that we recently received from Hugh Healy, Carryway Support. Hugh was very thorough and had excellent communications with us regarding our buggy fleet at The Westerwood Resort – nothing was too difficult for him.
Our open day event is a very important day for us, and it makes life much easier to have a relationship with a company (Carryway) that we can rely on each year.
Carryway are always a pleasure to deal with and their drivers are always friendly and professional. It takes a little bit of worry out of my job knowing that I can rely on your good service.
Many thanks to the team, especially Adam who was friendly, helpful and professional.
It is a pleasure to work with Carryway, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.
We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
