Creative Green Awards

The Creative Green community has grown to over 250 certifications. We celebrated the sector’s achievement in April 2017 with an Awards Ceremony recognising the inspirational commitment creative and cultural organisations have demonstrated in embedding sustainability, and again in 2018 at the Roundhouse in July.

“The Creative Green awards are celebrating some of the most outstanding cultural organisations in the country. These pioneering arts organisations have been doing brilliant work combining practical actions with inspirational ideas.”

– Alison Tickell, Julie’s Bicycle
