This year Bluedot have pledged to donate £10 to Energy Revolution for every 2019 weekend ticket sold throughout December! Bluedot has been working with Energy Revolution since the very beginning, when festival director, Ben Robinson, helped to found the project in 2015.
Here’s Ben’s message to Bluedot fans…
“As we approach the festive season, we’re more aware than ever of the environmental impact of this time of year.
Unwanted gifts, miles of wrapping paper and millions driving home to see family, all leave a carbon imprint that is having a huge effect on the planet.
That’s why this festive season for every weekend ticket you order for bluedot 2019, we’ll be donating £10 to EnergyRevolution, which invests in sustainable energy projects… This is just one part of a wider sustainability programme that bluedot will be co-ordinating year round, and we’d love you to be part of it.” We’ll see you in July! – Ben Robinson, Festival Director

As well as working with Energy Revolution to balance travel emissions over the last two years, in 2015 they installed 30KW of solar panels on the roof of their HQ, which have generated 49,797.23 KW in two years. They are in the process of updating their fleet to low emission vehicles; to date they have replaced half of their buses with Ford Custom mini-buses with Ford EcoBlue 2.0 litre TDCi engines, which have low fuel consumption and low emissions.
