Julie’s Bicycle, the sustainability group, has announced its first Creative Green Awards and the shortlist of creative organisations and events representing the efforts to embed environmental action.

Running since 2009, Creative Green is a certification enabling venues, museums and galleries, festivals and offices to assess their environmental commitment, understanding and improvement.

The awards, which celebrate more than 50 arts organisations undertaking Creative Green certification in 2016/17, are testament to the inspirational commitment of creative and cultural organisations throughout the UK to sustainability.

The awards will be hosted by Caroline Lucas, co-leader of the Green Party, MP for Brighton, at Somerset House on April 25, 2017.
