We feel the strong urge to reduce our impact on nature and climate so we can contribute to society. Our sustainability policy has five pillars with concrete goals. 

Energy:

– Use renewable energy sources from batteries and the power grid.

– Where possible use electrical machinery on-site.

Mobility:

– Where possible, we let artists travel by train to the Hague.

– We advise and recommend our visitors to come to the festival by public transport. Please see the section ‘Transport’ for more information on this subject.

– We monitor the distances traveled by visitors and artists so that we have a better understanding of our ecological footprint and can better focus on reducing it in the future.

Social environment:

РAll remaining meals from crew catering and public catering are collected daily and donated to the Vers & Vrij foundation. This is a community fridge in the area of Zuiderpark for people with low income.

Resources:

– No single use plastics objects on the festival terrain.

– We use Circular PET cups, a 100% circular system.

– Use of eco-friendly cleaning materials and toilet paper.

– Minimize waste from production by reducing single use items.

– Separated waste collection.

Food and beverages:

– 50% of the food served at The Crave Festival is vega(n).
