MUSIC ORGS BACK NEW CHARITY  
3/19/24

U.K. and European music orgs are supporting the launch of a new charity, Murmur, that aims to raise funds and advocate for solutions to climate change.

Beggars Group, Because Music and Secretly Affiliates are among the founding partners that have collectively contributed more than £1m to help lead and drive change across their industries. The partners have committed to a carbon audit and reduction of their carbon emissions in line with a 1.5C future (the target maximum world average surface temperature rise to be reached by 2100, when compared to pre-industrial levels), while making annual financial contributions to Murmur’s shared fund based on their environmental impact.

Murmur will offer grants to projects that look to make positive change within the visual arts and music sectors; initiatives that aim to inspire new ways of storytelling and positive action around climate change; and projects that have lasting and tangible impacts globally in tackling the climate crisis.

British record label trade body The BPI and the Association of Independent Music (AIM) have received a pilot grant from Murmur to establish a Music Climate Pact and bring together the industry to mitigate their contribution to climate change and take positive action.

Caius Pawson, founder of record label Young, is behind the creation of Murmur, alongside Matthew Slotover, co-founder of international art organization Frieze and founding member of Gallery Climate Coalition.
