On June 27, Miljöstrategen announced, after external review, that No Limit Street Art 2017 fulfills the requirements for environmental graduated events according to the criteria for Swedish Environmental Base. It means, most likely, that No Limit is the world’s first street art festival that receives an environmental diploma.
“Of course, we can not say 100% that it’s totally unique, but neither we, Miljöstrategen or the municipality environmental investigators have found any other examples. The diploma is in line with both the festival, the municipality and Borås TME’s thoughts of minimizing environmental impact in connection with major events in the city, says Stina Hallhagen, project manager No Limit Street Art Borås.
In the audit prior to the diploma, at least 75% of specified practical measures are required. No Limit managed 95% of the points of action and has therefore passed the diploma.
– As with other environmental graduated events, an audit will also take place during the festival itself. Then, No Limit is reviewed through an additional review to see that we keep what we promised and ensure environmental work all the way, “continues Stina Hallhagen.
