Pearl Jam’s Quest to Neutralize Its Carbon FootprintSince their debut 20 years ago, Pearl Jam has evolved from an alternative rock band to a full-scale business entity. They have total control over their decisions and destiny, including their commitment to sustainability and the environment.
Pearl Jam made sustainability an early priority. Shows like Pearl Jam’s 20th Anniversary Destination Weekend (PJ20) require big semi trucks for equipment, numerous airplane flights, and large amounts of power. Trouble is, this creates a sizable carbon output. So, as the part of the solution, the band partnered with UPS for recommendations on how to minimize the impact of this large undertaking.
Pearl Jam’s goal is a lofty but attainable one: to completely neutralize the carbon emissions they’ve put out from day one when they first started touring. With UPS, they hope to change the way people–and businesses–think about sustainability.
