The Fringe development goals are a series of collective commitments to ensure the festival is more inclusive, fair and sustainable. The goals were launched as part of our 75th anniversary in 2022, and include targets for climate action, including becoming a carbon net zero event by 2030.
Where we are now
Since 2015, the Fringe Society has reduced its carbon footprint by 77%.

Please note: due to pandemic-related office closure, we do not have data for 2020-2021.
Our actions going forward
We have identified six pillars that will support our approach to sustainability. Each pillar further develops our current activities and commitments.
