We're totally committed to reducing our impact on the environment while rocking out to amazing tunes at TRNSMT.
As proud signatories of the Green Nation Sustainability Charter, we're here to preserve the live music experience for generations to come. Being one of Scotland's biggest and most exciting festivals, we've on a mission to use our creativity to drive positive social and environmental change. At TRNSMT, we’ve already exceeded major targets in the charter, reducing our energy emissions by over 90% by investing in sustainable biodiesel and recycling 66% of our waste, with nothing going to landfill.
We're also members of Vision:2025, an amazing network of over 500 outdoor events and businesses that are taking serious climate action so, we follow clear and solid sustainability standards and targets. As members, we're all about reducing our climate impact, measuring our emissions annually, and working to share experiences and develop best practices in the events industry.
Planning your outfit? How about rocking vintage threads, swapping clothes with your pals, or simply wearing what you already own? Let's embrace circular fashion!

Play your part by reducing your emissions and making sustainable travel choices.
Keep the Site Clean & Use the Right Bins
Rubbish can be transformed into energy and fertiliser. Cool, eh?
Let's keep our festival site spick and span while using the right bins.
Play your part to help us maximise our composting efforts by putting your rubbish in the right bins.
Reduce Plastic Waste
Stay hydrated and help reduce plastic waste.
We've set up free to use water points across the site where you can refill your bottle again and again.
It's super simple… bring a soft or collapsible water bottle and use our water points to keep your bottle filled.
Quick note: Make sure your refillable water bottle is made of soft, collapsible material and holds 500ml or less.
Do not bring single-use disposable vapes. They pollute the environment and incorrect disposal of these can be hazardous at waste centres.
Go Meat Free
Feeling hungry? Give vegetarian or vegan options a go and reduce the environmental impact of your food. We've got an amazing range of food vendors offering delicious, locally sourced plant-based meals. Once available closer to the festival, make sure you download our app for more information on available options from specific traders.
Play your part and choose a planet-friendly option and dig into some veggie or vegan goodness!
