LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — The good folks at NACPA have been working with Reverb to develop a paper to help concert producers to create more environmentally sustaining, or green events, while keeping concerts financially sound.
Reverb is a non-profit organzation with extensive experience in creating environmentally friendly live performance events, collaborating on more than 100 major tours with a list of artists and venues that includes: Jack Johnson, Coldplay, Dave Matthews Band, Drake, Arcade Fire, John Mayer, Maroon 5, Sheryl Crow, Phish, John Legend, and the Honda Civic Tour.
To this end, the partnership has produced a report entitled: How To Green Your Concerts Without Breaking the Bank, which was released on October 20th in a free download on Reverb's website.
Intended to be a quick start guide for promoters and venues, the report identifies six top areas of impact (each rated on financial cost/benefit and difficulty of implementation) along with syggestions for ways to implement simple solutions, and offering examples of where those solutions are already in action.
The six areas of focus include fan transportation, environmental education, recycling, water conservation, and ways to 'green' your back offices.
The report also includes a list of key resources to help promoters get started down the path toward environmental sustainability.
