Wexford Festival Opera aims to be a catalyst for positive change and to work towards making our festival more sustainable, efficient, and economical.

As sustainability gathers momentum, it has become a core value of our effort, alongside and linked to - respect, openness, and excellence – with sustainability now at the heart of everything we do.

What are we doing?

Our strategy focuses on four strands:

  • on improving energy and waste management across our buildings;
  • on reducing the carbon footprint of our productions;
  • on minimising the impact of our events, catering, services, and retail
  • on inspiring our staff, artists, audiences, and stakeholders to support action against climate change.

Every department at Wexford Festival Opera is committed to changing for the better.
