VAULT Festival is committed to and actively working towards an environmentally sustainable industry. We understand that the event we manage has an environmental, social, and economic impact. Therefore, we’re committed to the development, implementation and continual improvement of a sustainable event management system to minimise any negative impacts of our operations. Therefore, we’ve made steps this year to further improve our commitment to sustainability and we have outlined below how you can do the same.
What do VAULT Festival do?
We recycle our waste – our waste service company (Brewsters) have a 0% landfill policy.
We operate paperless tickets and encourage audiences not to print their tickets and use e-tickets instead.
All of our print that we produce (i.e. posters, flyers, and brochures) will be printed in an environmentally sustainable way
We utilise reusable cups at all our bars.
We use biodegradable food packaging and cutlery at all our food outlets
We don’t stock straws or stirrers at our bars (paper straws are available upon request for access requirements)
We have mostly LED Lighting rigs to reduce power consumption.
We encourage festival attendees to travel by public transport, bicycle or on foot.
We encourage companies to take on similar policies and approaches to your work.
What do we ask our Visiting Companies to do?

All print materials (flyers and posters) should be printed in an environmentally sustainable way. This can be easily achieved by: a) choosing a carbon positive printers such as Seacourt Print b) printing on paper that is FSC certified, uncoated, recyclable, or from recycled sources c) printing with inks that are alcohol and VOC free
We only allow 200 flyers and 10 posters per company to be distributed onsite by the VAULT Festival team.
Encourage audiences to take a photo of a flyer instead of taking the flyer with them by including a ‘Photo Me’ or ‘Take a Photo’ logo.
Any distribution of printed materials onsite must be active ‘person-to-person engagement’ – no ‘flat surface flyering’ is permitted (leaving flyers on tables, shelves, bars throughout the venue). Any flyers left on tables or surfaces will be removed.
Include the relevant sustainability logo on your printed materials. Eg. If your flyers are printed on paper from sustainable forests, include the FSC logo. If your flyers can be recycled, include a ‘Recycle Me’ logo.
Collect and recycle any unused flyers, posters, or leaflets when you are finished with them.
Plan your get out and dispose of your waste responsibly; recycling, reusing, or repurposing wherever possible.
Avoid single use plastics and materials.
Any glitter / ticker tape used should be biodegradable.
Travel in an eco-friendly way – share vans for transporting set where possible.
