Finalists revealed for the 2024 International AGF Awards

AGF (A Greener Future) has revealed the finalists of the International AGF Awards 2024 and they include 27 events, venues and innovators from 12 countries. Awards are given across nine important sustainability categories, including power, water, food and travel, and the top accolade of the International Greener Festival Award 2024. The ceremony will be held on February 27 during the Green Events & Innovations Conference at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London.

Finalists are selected from all AGF-certified Greener Events, Greener Festivals and Greener Arenas over the last year, with top scores across key sustainability criteria. Applicants undergo a detailed assessment, site visits, and analysis by AGF auditors. To be eligible to enter the awards it is necessary to apply for certification and provide evidence such as fuel or electricity and water usage, waste transfer notes, transport measurements, material traceability, and survey data and undergo a site visit from AGF assessors. Additionally, green innovations from festivals and events have been selected and are judged by an independent jury.

Claire O’Neill, CEO of AGF, said: “We’re very excited to be bringing the International AGF Awards back to GEI in February. It’s always great fun, and an honour to be able to highlight and celebrate organisations and individuals who are doing everything they can to make positive changes in the world. Huge congrats to all of the nominees!”
