Paramore and Fall Out Boy's MONUMENTOUR Will Be Carbon Neutral
Live Nation, in conjunction with JustGreen Lifestyle, a Just Energy Group Inc announced yesterday (April 24th) they will be providing enough carbon offsets to make the tour carbon neutral.
According to the official press release, Live Nation and JustGreen will also be running an exclusive consumer promotion that will deliver a unique eco-friendly experience for one lucky winner and guest. They will be provided with a carbon neutral trip to Tampa, Florida on July 26 to take part in an exclusive eco-friendly experience with both co-headlining bands followed by VIP treatment to the show.
Live Nation is also making it easier for eco-conscious fans to get involved and help green the concert experience. Fans can contribute $2 or more to the cause when they purchase tickets to Live Nation owned and operated venues at LiveNation.com and Ticketmaster.com. JustGreen provides further incentive, as they will match all contributions with equivalent carbon offsets via the Live Nation online purchase path. All contributions and carbon offsets will be applied to the Live Nation venue’s emissions to help carbon neutralize the total footprint. This will provide Live Nation with more than 55,000 tons of carbon offsets annually – which is the equivalent to removing close to 11.000 cars’ emissions off the road!
“We have a responsibility and a desire to be on tour... a lot. So it's really great to work with forward-thinking people to help make our touring business as sustainable and Eco-conscious as we can.” added Hayley Williams of Paramore.
Since March of 2013, JustGreen has been Live Nation's exclusive carbon offset provider for consumable energies in their owned and operated venues, purchasing enough carbon credits to offset the emissions created at 85 Live Nation clubs and amphitheaters across the United States. This green alliance promotes Just Energy’s carbon offsetting products to music lovers all across the United States and by the end of 2014 will have provided Live Nation with more than 110,000 tons of carbon offsets.
