Green Music Australia is pleased to announce a 7 week program for Australian music organisations to help them understand, monitor and improve their environmental impact.
Launched in Victoria in 2022 and New South Wales in 2023, the Green Action Program (GAP) has supported 13 music businesses to date to improve their sustainability management and performance.
The 2023 New South Wales program has been made possible with the support of the NSW Environment Protection Authority, City of Sydney and the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
The Green Action Program (GAP) supports music businesses to participate in the 7-week sustainability program and undertake a range of hands-on learning modules including:

Participating organisations will have their data analysed and benchmarked in our new environmental reporting platform (Amidesi) for three years post program, and receive annual reports highlighting organisational progress.
Support from the Australia Council for the Arts, the NSW Environment Protection Authority and City of Sydney enabled us to offer businesses heavily discounted fees – scaled according to the size of organisation.
One of the biggest outcomes of doing the Green Action Program was the shift in mindset. Prior to doing the program, considering our responsibility to the environment was something we did from time to time, but now it’s embedded in everything we do. Not only in business but personally as well. It has also provided us with a clear strategic framework for continuing this work into the future. I strongly recommend organisations do this program. It’s perfect if you’re wanting to do more than you are, or even for someone who has no idea where to start.”
