Green Footsteps and collaborators

Roskilde Festival has the environment and sustainability as an area of focus and interest.  We believe that one’s small eco- friendly actions have a great effect on the environment –  that’s what we call green footsteps.

Because of this, we have collaboration partners who give the audience and ourselves the opportunity to take steps in towards being a more green festival.

If we, our audience and our partners each take green footsteps, we can make a difference.

Energy

EXIDE TECHNOLOGY

Exide Technology is one of the world's leading companies on the market for larger batteries. They have great experience in developing new batteries and also develop batteries for electric vehicles with the environment in mind. Exide Technology has sponsored batteries to store the alternative energy Roskilde Festival produces at the power station in the Climate Community, so it can be used when the sun does not shine and the wind is not blowing.

LOVESPRING

LoveSpring is a foundation that collects funds to support humanitarian water projects in developing countries. At the festival, LoveSpring provides green drink cans, which can be filled up with water from established water taps.
