A low carbon initiative
for the Lumière Festival


Voiture Festival

For six years, Lumière festivalgoers have made an effort to offset their environmental footprint by supporting a sustainable development project in the Rhône-Alpes region. In addition to a contribution made by our partner, EDF, a portion of proceeds from the catalog sales is donated to a selected project.


Since 2009, the Lumière festival has committed to four environmental projects:

-The Gouter Hut refuge reconstruction project on the Mont Blanc ascent, which has just reopened for the new mountain climbing season.

-The planting of vegetal resources around Lake Geneva in France. The new additions have revived the once-existing agricultural heritage of the Alpine mountains and have enhanced the value of the exceptional view.

-The creation of a forest of fruit trees in Rhône-Alpes in the local area of Entre-Deux-Guiers, Isère. The forest offers an improved site to the many fishermen and promotes bee survival through the reintroduction of honey trees.

-The planting of broad-leaved trees in the local forest of Villette de Vienne in Isère to increase the diversity of the forest; 10 different species were planted over the surface of a hectare.

- The transformation of a hectare of a diseased chestnut forest into a suitable and long-living (200 years) oak forest located in northern Drôme, near the town of Vienne.

The Lumière festival continues its commitment to reducing direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions:

-The introduction of electric cars bearing the Lumière festival logo to transport film prints, communication materials and technical supplies throughout the metropolitan area.
-The use of electric cars to transport festival guests.
-The sorting of waste at the festival village.
-The promotion of public transportation in and around the city.


In partnership with EDF
