  • Food portions should ideally be adapted according to appetite, age or size
  • Free distribution of water on the stand is guaranteed if it is connected to a drinking water network in addition to public fountains
  • An alternative to sugar-sweetened soft drinks should be provided when selling beverages
  • Food products and beverages are ideally fair trade and/or EU organic certified

Waste management and cleaning

  • Reducing waste at the source is a priority
  • Single-use ware (bowls, bottles, cups, cutlery, etc.) must carry a biodegradable or compostable label if durable or returnable ware is not available
  • Biodegradable bags must replace plastic bags prohibited on site
  • Waste sorting in front of and behind the scenes must be guaranteed throughout the area
  • Cleaning and maintenance products must be environmentally and animal-friendly

Light and noise pollution

  • Noise and light pollution are to be avoided in all site developments and green spaces

  • Energy-efficient lighting and sound systems are recommended
  • All electrical appliances/generators used on site must be switched off at the end of the day


  • Car sharing for deliveries and dismantling is encouraged
  • Free public transport and soft mobility are strongly recommended
  • Installations, site developments and events must guarantee access for people with reduced mobility where the site permits
  • Welcoming and providing access to the public must be part of an ethical, civic-minded and responsible approach

Marketing and communication

  • When communicating a LUGA partner event, the project leader is invited to download and follow LUGA’s graphic guidelines
  • The LUGA logo must be used on all communication materials for event partners and must be submitted to the communications department for approval
  • The distribution of advertising flyers on LUGA sites must be approved by the LUGA
  • Digital communication (green digital solutions) must take precedence over print communication, the print run of which must be adjusted to actual needs
  • The communication material must be designed to minimise energy consumption
  • Use of recycled or certified paper and environmentally-friendly inks is to be favoured
  • Promotional items or merchandising products must be sustainable
  • Digital and printed communication media, as well as guidance systems, must be designed to comply with public accessibility standards

LUGA, an anti-waste event

Food waste is an ethical, economic and ecological challenge. That is why LUGA will officially be an ‘Antigaspi’ event, meaning anti-waste in French, and will apply measures to reduce food waste at events where food is served.
