Sustaina­bility

  • The future begins today

    ...and it is our responsibility to see how we will live our future and to leave our children and grandchildren with an ecologically, socially and economically intact community. Because sustainability begins in our own social environment, everyone can and must do their part.

    We at Tempelhof Sounds are aware of the environmental impact of activities for the production of a large scale event and therefore our societal responsibility. We want to show what is possible at a festival in terms of sustainability. We are using our experience, professionalism, and high quality standards. On this basis, we think economically, efficiently and purposefully. At the same time, we think with innovation. We are on the cutting edge and future-oriented.

    Ecological, economic and social sustainability are not alternatives, they belong together and are mutually dependent.

    We have defined a sustainability strategy so that:

    • we can be sure the legal requirements and the applicable environmental regulations are complied with and to find solutions whenever possible
    • we avoid environmental costs through the operation and activities of the festival by examining all areas and processes and, if possible, optimizing them sustainably and minimizing the impact on the environment
    • we improve the experience and the satisfaction of all persons involved

    Sustainable alignment is a continual process of improvement that includes defining areas of intervention, planning and implementing measures, monitoring operational processes and evaluating the achieved results. This process is constantly being optimized and adapted to new environmental requirements.

  • 17 Goals

    In 2015, the member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and agreed on 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to jointly solve global challenges such as climate change, growing inequalities, crises and conflicts. Each goal has specific targets that are to be achieved by the year 2030 for everyone and everywhere in the world. Strong partnerships between politics, civil society, business and science are just as important as the contribution of each individual.

  • What We Do

    Let’s get to work! Let’s make it happen!

    The only imprint of Tempelhof Sounds that should remain in Berlin from the festival should be that of a musical nature. You can see some of the measures we are taking to ensure future sustainability here. We have a long way to go, but if we walk it together, it will not only be green but also colorful.

    Waste & Recycling

    One of the most obvious challenges in all societies is waste management, which poses large local and global effects by the generation of green house gases.

    One particular focus of our festival is our environmental campaign. We aim for systematic avoidance by banning plastic products and avoiding single-use products, as well as professional, targeted waste collection (PPK, residual waste, leftover food, glass, wood, plastic) and efficient recycling.

    At Tempelhof Sounds, a reusable cup system has been implemented at all bars and beverage distribution points in the public area, and only reusable containers are used in the backstage areas. All employees and crews have a free, reusable water bottle per person at their disposal, which can be refilled at free water dispensers on the entire festival site.

    Environmental Protection

    The use of sustainable materials and the finding of recyclable, reusable, or digital alternatives and solutions is emphasized in all areas of the festival and implemented whenever possible.

    We are largely reducing the use of chemical toilets (“Dixis”) and use almost exclusively ecological, water-flushed and compost toilets.

    All of our water comes from the water supply in the area and will not be transported in tanks in order to avoid transportation emissions.

    We pay attention to the use of environmentally conscious, low-pollutant, and recyclable materials in diverse production areas when setting up our festival. (Decoration, paint, floor/floor coverings, merchandise, furniture, textiles, etc.)

    Emissions & Environmental Expenditure

    Emission protection! Important!

    Tempelhof Sounds is committed to offsetting the CO2 emissions of all vehicles and flights via Atmosfair so long as electromobility is not available as an alternative.

    Furthermore, during the festival nearly all personell transportation devices at the event site will be sustainably handled with electronic vehicles so as to avoid CO2 emissions.

    Tempelhof Sounds supports the use of public transportation for a CO2-reduced traffic volume through initiatives such as agreements with the Berlin Transportation Service (BVG) and the creation of a bicycle parking lot. 

    Due to the cooperation with the Berlin Transportation Service (BVG) all journeys with the BVG transportation services on the days of the event are included in the ticket price. Because of the central location we are very well connected with the public transportation network.

    Regional & Local Sourcing

    As part of the festival’s commitment to the local community, a number of local businesses, operators and suppliers will be offered opportunities to become part of our journey.

    We work closely with our dealers and suppliers to source local products and services to support the local economy. We make sure that all of our grocers are ethical and environmentally conscious.

    We put emphasis on healthy and balanced offers for food and drinks.

    We ensure that all of our partners and service providers endeavor to be fundamentally sustainable, share our values, and follow our principles and guidelines.
