The Green Award 2023

Entries open for the Green Award on 1 November 2022.

Returning for the TPi Awards 2023, the Green Award sponsored by Hilton Hotels, shines a light on sustainable practices within the live events industry. There has undoubtedly been a sea change when it comes to the attention and importance of sustainability both on the part of artists and fans – and it has fallen to our industry to create solutions to reduce the impact that live music has on the planet.

The Green Award is open to an individual, company or organisation that has gone above and beyond to make live touring more sustainable. From new working practices or company-wide protocols, to innovative eco-friendly products, this is an opportunity to share the work being done behind the scenes to lower the carbon footprint of the live events industry.

Last year’s winner SLX along with the rest of those Shortlisted demonstrated just some of the innovations within the sector to attempt to tackle the environmental impact of touring and live events. “It was fantastic to see sustainability front and centre at the TPi Awards,” commented Phoebe Currie of SLX following the company’s win earlier this year. The company impressed the judging panel for its company wide initiative to calculate its 2020/21 carbon footprint and a baseline of emissions. From this data the company pledged to the Bristol One City Climate Ask to be Net Zero by 2030.

As the 2022 winner, Currie will be representing SLX on our distinguished panel of judges that includes, Production Manager and TPG Sustainability facilitator, Jamal Chalabi, Chair and Co-Founder of Vision: 2025, Chris Johnson, Julie’s Bicycle and Project Lead for Vision: 2025, Chiara Badiali and Vision: 2025 Graham Brown. Also joining the judging panel this year will be Hope Solutions’ Luke Howell.

Nominations will be opened on 1 November and will close at the end of the month. The winner will be announced at the TPi Awards on the 27 February 2023.
