Music gets a Green Boost

Julie’s Bicycle, the organisation that helps the music industry to reduce its carbon emissions, has launched an online tool to help festivals measure, analyse, report and act on their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, as part of their post-event review.

The IG (Industry Green) Tools are available free of charge to any creative sector business in the UK, and provide a customised, tailored approach to measuring and recording annual GHG emissions for festivals and outdoor events, venues and office spaces.

The Greener Festival Awards scheme recommends its applicants make use of the IG Tool for festivals if they need help or guidance in measuring their carbon impacts – a key awards criterion.

Julie’s Bicycle has IG Tools in development to help measure GHGs from touring, recording studios, retail, distribution, and manufacturing facilities.  Continuing updates are available online at:
