Sustainability

Our events are all about living in the present, but Loveland cares about the future too. Organising sustainable events has been a priority since 2004 and we are proud to carry the ‘Bronze Label since 2005. In 2018 we became ‘Future Proof Festival’ certified and in 2019 we have joined the Plastic Promise movement. By taking the iniative with other Amsterdam based festival organisations we currently lead the way to leverage PET recycling within the events industry.
