As an educational institution, Avans University of Applied Sciences generally serves as an example in society and thus also in the field of sustainability. In recent years, the INTRO Festival, as part of the Avans Hogeschool, has made great strides in making the festivals in Breda and Den Bosch more sustainable. Our hard work has delivered the desired results, as a result of which we earned a Future Proof certificate in Den Bosch in 2017, 2018 and 2019 and in Breda in 2018 and 2019. The festival in Breda was also voted the most sustainable event of 2018 by the municipality of Breda!
We achieved this by limiting energy consumption, making the catering more sustainable and the introduction of the hard cup system, resulting in much less residual waste.
Our ambition is to continue to make our festivals more sustainable in the coming years and thus contribute to the world of tomorrow. Curious what we do? Every Friday we have #futureprooffriday on social media and you can read weekly what we have done in recent years and what we will do in the future.
