CO2-neutral music

The vow

January 12, 2014 I made a vow to carbon-offset all transportation connected to my musical activities.

The purpose

Becoming a non-polluting artist myself and spreading the consciousness about our individual responsibility for the state of the planet. Making artists a platform for behavioural change, by using their visibility and frontrunner/rolemodel-potentials. 

How I offset my CO2

I'm offsetting my CO2 through www.climatecare.org.
Climatecare is not a desk table offsetting office just moving papers around, but an organisation that e.g. plant a certain amount of trees according to how many miles you drive.
I use their “Carbon Calculator” to offset my pollution.

(NEWS:CLIMATECARE RECEIVES A QUEEN’S AWARD FOR ENTERPRISE IN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT)

How it works

In connection with all my concerts, I calculate how much CO2 my band and I are letting out  - by land and air and all over the planet. Then I find out how much money I will have to pay Climatecare for them to be able to neutralize our outlet - it's that easy.

The change

If we are unwaveringly determined to change our behaviour, we will force polluting industries to make money on our new responsible and green behaviour. Using their economic potentials to drive the change.

Please join

This initiative is simple, concrete and easy to do and communicate.
If you want to join or have ideas of how to expand it to other parts of society, I would love to hear from you. It's not fair to let our children and grandchildren clean up after us.
