The music industry is back in full swing after the COVID-19 pandemic – but as music venues heat up, so too does our planet.
On this week’s episode of Sky News ClimateCast, hosts Anna Jones and Katerina Vittozzi turn up the music. From gigs, festivals, concerts, tours, and everything in between, they find out about the environmental footprint of the music industry – and what needs to change.
They’re joined by professor of climate and energy policy Carly McLachlan, who recently led a study commissioned by Massive Attack, exploring the impact of the music business on carbon emissions.
Plus Adam Gardener, founder of Reverb – who works with artists such as Harry Styles, Billie Eilish & Maroon 5 – explains how we can reconcile the world of rock’n’roll with acting environmentally friendly, and help tackle the climate crisis.
