OUR GREEN POLICIES
The MOVE IT Green Strategy empowers individuals to make a significant environmental impact through small changes, demonstrating that going green is all about the collective power of individual actions.
From promoting sustainable transport options to reducing waste through recycling, we are dedicated to minimising our carbon footprint.
Join us at MOVE IT 2024 as we dance towards a greener future for generations to come!
BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE
To help reduce unnecessary waste, we encourage you to bring a reusable water bottle to the show. You will be able to fill them up at the water fountains stationed around the ExCeL. Don’t worry if you forget, you can grab a MOVE IT water bottle from our MOVE IT shop!
BOOK YOUR GREEN TRAVEL TO MOVE IT
New for MOVE IT 2024 we are proud to be working with The Big Green Coach company. The Big Green Coach is the largest events travel company in the UK, and their aim is to reduce the number of vehicles travelling to events.
USE YOUR E-TICKET INSTEAD OF PRINTING
To reduce wasted paper, we advise you to use your E-ticket rather than a printed version. This can be scanned from a phone or iPad by a member of staff at the queuing hall.
THE EXCEL GREEN COMMITMENT
The ExCeL Centre is now a certified carbon-neutral venue. You can find out more about their sustainable policies here.
CARBON OFFSET YOUR JOURNEY
Immediate Live, organiser of MOVE IT, is committed to reducing the carbon footprint of all its events.
As part of this process, we’re giving our visitors the chance to make a voluntary donation to Ecologi to carbon offset part of their journey to our events.
Thanks to your generous donations last year, we were able to plant 100 trees in Kenya and 25 in Tanzania.
You can see the impact of the donations made by all visitors at Immediate Live here.
RECYCLE OLD DANCE CLOTHES
Within the dance industry, there’s a significant amount of materials that go to waste, considering that costumes are frequently worn only once. Following MOVE IT, we kindly urge you to consider donating your used dance costumes and shoes to charities rather than simply discarding them. If you help finding a charity please click here.
We all have the power to take action to bring our world back to life. If you would like to discover more ways you can help with climate change, please click here.
