Primavera Sound is an emissions neutral event for the fourth consecutive year. Once completed the calculation of the 2018 edition’s greenhouse gas emissions, Primavera Sound offset them with Clean CO2.
Primavera Sound has been calculating its carbon footprint since 2011, and since 2015 the festival has offset emissions through projects from the Clean CO2 portfolio, becoming an emissions neutral event.
For the 2018 edition, the festival has closed a collaboration agreement with the purchase of 368 CO2 credits from the Madre de Dios REED Project, a sustainable forest management project developed in the Peruvian Amazon. The project reduces 659,793 tons of CO2 each year, increases local employment opportunities, with over 100 workers on temporary contracts, allocates economic resources with basic medicines and supports campaigns against Dengue, among other benefits.
Finally, as a guarantee of the emissions offset made during the Primavera Sound 2018 edition, the festival has obtained the Clean CO2 Certificate and Seal with a QR code that redirects the user to a customized informative application with information and images of the project, an informative video, and information of the carbon footprint calculation offset.
