Footsteps to Follow
“As a band, it’s important for us to be accountable for the pollution we create. Since 2004, we’ve invested in projects around the world to mitigate the CO2 emissions caused by our tours. This investment is for a verified offset project intended to protect and manage the forests on Afognak, and keep Alaska wild.”
Pearl Jam’s Lead Guitarist & Carbon Mitigation Manager
“I’ve always had an interest in understanding and caring for the environment. Training and competing in the sport of skeleton requires significant air and vehicle travel, which contribute to global GHG emissions. Working with ClimeCo, I am able to balance chasing my Olympic dream while reducing my impact on the environment!”
Professional Skeleton Racer
“Music and surfing are foundational in my life, and the longer I go, the more it’s not a big step to seek to make our tours ocean-friendly. Simple, skip single-use plastic, carbon offsets, and encourage others along the way.“
