In 2021, we helped festival members balance the equivalent of 690,618 audience travel miles (190.51 tonnes of CO2e) with investment in clean, renewable energy.
Travel is typically the largest source of emissions from live events. Here at TicketSellers, we recognise this environmental impact and are committed to working with the charity ecolibrium to tackle these emissions, helping our network of event clients and their audiences to do the same.
ecolibrium is a live events industry response to the climate crisis – a community of events, festivals, suppliers, artists and music companies taking action to reduce travel impacts and invest in climate solutions.
Since 2015, ecolibrium has worked with over 55 events and 40 suppliers to balance the carbon emissions from over 13 million travel miles. They provide resources, tools, advice and inspiration to reduce travel emissions and invest in climate solutions – supporting ecosystem protection, regeneration and clean energy generation.
Ticketsellers work with ecolibrium by embedding their Travel Carbon Calculator into our ticket-buying process meaning that our event clients can offer travel carbon balancing to their audience in a simple and accurate way.
We also share ecolibrium’s advice and resources for reducing travel carbon emissions from event travel – encouraging more sustainable ways of travelling wherever possible. You can read their Guide To Sustainable Travel for Festival and Events here.
