eFestivals is carbon neutral

published: Thu 15th Jan 2009

eFestivals (along with our sister site eGigs) is carbon neutral.

We offset the emissions created by our business, as well as doing all we can to reduce our energy usage and emissions creation.

Climate change is happening - just look around you. We can wait for governments and businesses to stop pointing the finger at anyone but themselves, or we can take responsibility for our own actions and the consequences of those actions.

The amount of energy a person or business uses can be reduced by a significant amount by a few simple measures - and save money too! Turn your heating down just a little, and put on warmer clothes; turn your TV off properly (don't leave it on 'stand-by'), and unplug your chargers when not in use; fill the kettle with just the water you need; turn lights off, and use low-energy bulbs; and think about whether all your journeys are really necessary, and whether they could be made using public transport.

eFestivals is urging each company we do business with to act to reduce and offset their emissions, and we urge you to do the same. The longer we take to act, the more we'll have to do.

Offsetting and reducing our emissions is one part of eFestivals' ethical policy. We donate 1% of our turnover (turnover, not profit) to charities, with the major beneficiary being WaterAid. We also put 10% of our turnover directly back into festivals.
