Environmental Sustainability

At the Sydney Opera House, we believe that creativity can help build a better world. This includes embedding sustainability into all aspects of our delivery of Vivid LIVE, guided by our 10 Principles for Sustainable Event Management. From changing up our day-to-day building operations to reduce the festival’s carbon footprint (Vivid LIVE has been a carbon neutral festival since 2015), to creating an accessible and inclusive site and experiences, we’re sharing how we’re taking action to build the world we want to see as part of our commitment to the UN Global Goals

Together, let’s inspire change and build a better future. Read more to see how you can get involved.
