In 2023, the festival again invests in carbon compensation and the Verde Ponto Society. The place selected for natural soil regeneration is Quinta da France, in Covilhã, one of the largest forest areas of Carvalhal Negra.
Cooljazz is developing ecological solutions to make the festival increasingly sustainable in partnership with the Ponto Verde Society.
In addition to carbon compensation, the festival continues to invest in changes in the venue to reduce the use of objects with great environmental impact. The Eco Cop – the viewer can take home and reuse, thus reducing the number of plastic cups at the event and their waste – and Straw Free, are some of the examples of measures implemented. Due to the partnership with the Ponto Verde Society, for the 18th edition, Cooljazz has several awareness actions in the festival enclosure for recycling, including structures that allow the public to be an agent of change and begin to implement separation. of waste, in the festival venue.
In this edition, the Environment Cascais will be responsible for collecting Bio Waste and Coffee Capsules at the festival. In the case of Bio Waste, collection crates will be available by each food operator, which will be responsible for the separation in their space. As for capsules, a container is identified to ensure their treatment will be available.
Since the sustainable issue is a priority for Cooljazz, in the Foodcourt Cool Pick & Go area, there is now a 50% veggies offer. All gastronomy companies have to respect the festival’s sustainability rules manual, thus ensuring good environmental practices. Another measure that remains from the past edition, is the zero waste policy, where the food surpluses that the festival produces are redistributed.
Cooljazz thus implements in its 18th edition a sustainable policy based on the environmental, economic, and social components, in order to preserve the space of the festival, such as sensitizing consumers to more sustainable and ecological options. All information is available here.
