OUR TRAVEL POLICY

Every company inevitably produces greenhouse gas emissions through business activities. We are no exception to that.  With our increasingly international touring activities comes more mobility between different countries and continents. The climate impact of our international professional activities cannot be ignored.

From September 2019, for all those travels by airplane that we cannot avoid or reduce ( i.e : by travelling by train or car) we will offset the carbon footprint of our flights and based on those carbon footprint calculations we will donate to high-quality climate protection projects such as  atmosfair or myclimate. We will request the same to our partner festivals and venues whenever they invite our artists and their teams to perform in their cities or countries. 

Our carbon emissions will be offset in climate protection projects thoughout the world that fulfil the highest standards (CDM, Gold Standard, Plan Vivo) reducing the emission of greenhouse gases, thus directly protecting the climate. However, these climate protection projects not only reduce climate-impacting emissions, they also contribute to sustainable development in the countries where our climate protection partners develop their projects. This means that it is not only the climate that will benefit; the local population in those countries will do as well. 

Our principle is that these donations are voluntary (not mandatory) and will be based on the financial possibilities of each donator. We hope that we and our partners are able to offset 100% of the flight carbon emissions we need to do in the future and if not possible any offset/donation percentage will apply and be more than welcome ( be it 70%, 50%, 20% ...). 

We are aware that offsetting our flights carbon emisions cannot solve the problem of the climate crisis since it does nothing to change the actual source of CO₂. However it is a necessary second-best solution as long as the best solution does not yet exist.
