LIVE NATION GETS GREENER

Live Nation’s global sustainability coalition, Green Nation, has released a new charter for environmental goals at all Live Nation owned and operated venues, clubs, theaters and festivals.

The primary targets are reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030, and ending the sale of single-use plastics at all owned and operated venues and festivals by 2021.

The company also plans to reduce or eliminate the use of fossil fuels where possible and pursue a low-carbon economy by sourcing renewable energy; and aim for offices, venues and events to be zero waste to landfill and achieve at least a 50% material recovery rate by 2030.

To eliminate the sale of single-use plastic at festivals and venues, Live Nation will be running a trial with plant-based water bottles across Europe this year.  

 The adverse effects of climate change are undeniable, and we want to use our place on the world stage to be part of the solution,” said Michael Rapino, President and CEO, Live Nation Entertainment. “Together our concerts, venues, festivals, and offices around the world are setting new sustainability standards for live events.”

At a later date, bands will be provided with a fleet of pedicabs and rickshaws to get from gig to gig.
