Would not be possible without you. Your empathy and support are key. We will soon release the list of #SustainableBahidorá actions and commitments for 2024.
🐸 Since 2015, Bahidorá measures and offsets 100% of its carbon footprint, through the restoration and reforestation of forests carried out by the Scolel'té project in the Biosfera el Ocote reserve, located in Chiapas. This has positioned us as one of the pioneer festivals in offsetting its carbon footprint in Latin America.
🐸 In 2018, Bahidorá was the first Latin American festival to receive the Green Music Initiative recognition. What is GMI? They’re a German organization that qualifies and rewards the environmental programs of international festivals.
🐸 In 2022 and 2023, Bahidorá receives the support of the British Council's Circular Culture: Sustainable Festivals. This is how the Re:Set Gallery Project was born, a platform co-designed with The Common, Glastonbury, where you can learn more about the role of festivals in the construction of cities and societies of tomorrow, under the paradigm of sustainability.

Bahidorá Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 2030 Agenda
We are committed to knowing the negative impact of Bahidorá on our environment, by acting to reduce and mitigate the negative impact, as well as protecting natural resources. We are also committed to fostering and building a sustainable community, a community that sparks conversation, knowledge sharing and changing attitudes around a sustainable culture (socially just and environmentally safe).
Action for the environment
We will continue to expand the scope of measuring and offsetting our emissions from the use of air and ground transportation (of the organizing committee, talent and transportation offered to attendees), on-site energy consumption (e.g. use of electric generators and fuels to heat the food) and, finally, indirect emissions generated by the food offered in the catering.
Biodiesel: We collect the cooking oil used in Bahidorá to deliver it to our partner, who uses it as an input for the production of biodiesel.
