Organizing a festival has a direct impact on the environment. FINFRINGE ry. is committed to environmentally friendly practices. We were given the EcoCompass environmental management sertificate in the spring of 2023.
# 1 Our Commitment
Each of us has a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint for the benefit of our planet and ourselves. Finfringe Festival participates by committing to environmentally friendly practices in its event production.
Finfringe strives to use recycled products and local know-how.
Fringe performances themselves are eco-deeds in terms of both their themes and their light infrastructure, which can also be plentiful.
We consider sustainability in our marketing materials, office work and vehicle use.
We encourage festival artists and the public to commit to our Environmental Responsibility programme.
# 2 Recycling
All our waste is sorted.
We aim to use recycled, biodegradable materials. We consider longevity and reuse in our procurement.
The workwear of the Hi team, the volunteers and the staff, is also made of recycled material.
# 3 The quest for a paperless festival
Finfringe markets primarily through digital means. For example, the festival programme and schedule can be easily found on our website.
The sale of e-tickets also reduces the amount of printed material. We are partnered with the local Eventio Oy.
