This summer, we’re delighted to be launching the first carbon-balancing scheme specifically tailored to the needs of event suppliers. It’s easy to use, and we provide support for companies who wish to approach their operations more responsibly.
Using our Travel Carbon Calculator, companies can calculate their carbon emissions from journeys to and from events, and donate to Energy Revolution in order to ‘balance’ them. 100% of donations are invested in renewable energy projects; turning the carbon emissions from travel into a world-changing positive investment.
The pilot programme has been produced with support from some of the UK’s most progressive event industry companies, including Chai Wallahs, BES Systems, Rock City Crew, Charge & Store, Firefly and Greenbox Events.
On average, vehicle travel is responsible for more than two thirds of a festival’s carbon footprint. Participation from suppliers will help events and festivals significantly reduce their environmental impacts.
The Suppliers Initiative compliments our audience facing program, which raised more than £8,500 in its first year through point-of-sale travel balancing donations . The funds were invested in wind turbines in Tamil Nadu with charity The Converging World. The initiative has accounted for almost 1.7 million travel miles worth of carbon emissions to date.
Energy Revolution aims to balance 10 million miles of travel emissions in 2017, and is welcoming suppliers, event organisers, artists and artist management companies to join the movement for 2017. To find out more and join the scheme, go HERE.
