ADDRESSING GREENHOUSE GAS POLLUTION
ADDRESSING CARBON EMISSIONS
Greenhouse gas emissions from HARRY STYLES LOVE ON TOUR were calculated by the REVERB team including:
• Band + Crew Travel
• Venue Energy Use
• Hotel Stays
• Fan Travel
Through funding support of verified climate projects that measurably reduce or eliminate greenhouse gas pollution, Harry Styles was able to reduce significantly more greenhouse gas pollution than the measured footprint!
Scroll down to see the projects that were supported!
Carbon Elimination Project
Kenya Clean Water Project
The Kenya Clean Water Project is providing zero-emission water filtration systems to communities helping provide safe drinking water and reducing the need to burn wood or other fuel to boil water to make it safe.
Many communities in Kenya rely on boiling water to make their drinking water safe for consumption. The fuel for boiling the water is often dirty oil or wood, resulting in unsafe air quality, significant greenhouse gas emissions, and deforestation (worsening the climate impacts). The water filtration systems provided by this project improve quality of life in Kenya and help mitigate global greenhouse gas pollution.
Carbon Elimination Project
Sky Wind India Project
Currently in India, air pollution is responsible for an estimated 800,000 to 1 million deaths each year. Part of the cause of the air pollution is India’s reliance on one of the world’s “dirtiest” electric grids powered primarily by fossil fuels.
In partnership with Native Energy, The Sky Wind Project, located in rural Maharashtra, India, is fighting this issue. The wind turbines from this project deliver 96 Megawatts of clean energy into the grid, which reduces annual greenhouse gas pollution by 135,000 tonnes of CO2e – that’s enough clean energy to power 14,000 average homes in the US!
Funding from this tour is supporting this important carbon-elimination project and helping India move away from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy!
SOLAR POWERED STREETLIGHTS
Climate funds from Harry’s Tour are helping to provide solar-powered, WiFi-enabled street lamps in Michigan. In partnership with Soulardarity and The Solutions Project, this project not only reduces carbon emissions, it also helps a community in need outside of Detroit.
In 2011 DTE Energy repossessed over 1,000 of Highland Park’s streetlights, leaving residents to live in the dark for almost a decade. Harry’s support will:
- Help purchase, install and maintain solar-powered smart streetlights
- Establish a free, public WiFi mesh network to children, residents, and visitors
- Enhance community safety
#RockNRefill SINGLE-USE PLASTIC WASTE REDUCTION
A Single Bottle, A Huge Positive Impact
33,940 Single-Use Plastic Bottles Eliminated at shows on the tour.
- 8,760 Backstage
- 25,180 Front of House
As part of the #RockNRefill partnership with Nalgene, REVERB provided custom-designed reusable water bottles for the 2021 tour. In addition to providing bottles to band and crew, REVERB also made the bottles available for donation to fans in the Action Village.
REVERB also provided free water refill stations for fans front of house and ensured water refill stations were available for band and crew.
8,108 fans donated for a #RockNRefill reusable Nalgene bottle on Love on Tour
If every fan used their bottle just twice a week for one year instead of using single-use plastic bottles:
- Each fan would eliminate 208 bottles
- Together, that would eliminate over 1.7 MILLION bottles
- Lined up end-to-end, 1.7 MILLION bottles would stretch across the entire country of Switzerland!
