Partnering with ecolibrium
ecolibrium is a live events industry response to the climate crisis – a community of events, festivals, suppliers, artists and music companies taking action to reduce travel impacts and invest in climate solutions.
Since 2015, ecolibrium has worked with over 55 events and 40 suppliers to balance the carbon emissions from over 13 million travel miles. They provide resources, tools, advice and inspiration to reduce travel emissions and invest in climate solutions to balance unavoidable emissions – supporting ecosystem protection, regeneration through their Trees+ programme and clean energy generation through Energy Revolution.
In 2015 and 2017 ecolibrium invested donations from their members to their Energy Revolution programme into the Converging World’s projects. Donations in 2015 came from ecolibrium’s festival members, including Boomtown Fair, Shambala, Kendal Calling, Bestival and Secret Garden Party, via audiences who opted to balance the carbon emissions associated with travelling to the events.
In 2017 donations came from ecolibrium’s artist member, Joss Stone, who calculated and carbon-balanced emissions from the first half of her ‘Total World Tour’ after taking measures to reduce emissions as much as possible.
ecolibrium sets out to help the event industry to reduce emissions and supporting climate solutions but their vision is wider: they believe the live events industry has the potential to inspire and educate millions of people each year, highlighting key issues and showing leadership by taking action on the climate crisis.
