  • 816,000+ Fan Actions in the BamaGreen Eco-Village
  • 569,000+ Single-Use Water Bottles eliminated at shows
  • 63,000+ Tons of Greenhouse Gas Pollution Neutralized

Addressing Carbon Emissions

In addition to the above efforts to reduce the tour’s environmental footprint, remaining greenhouse gas emissions are measured and neutralized through vetted climate projects

  • Calculate tour carbon emissions from travel and transportation, hotel stays, venue energy usage, fan travel, and more
  • REVERB Climate Portfolio: Dave Matthews Band is committed to addressing tour emissions through support of REVERB’s Climate Portfolio. The portfolio funds verified greenhouse gas pollution reduction projects and climate justice efforts to neutralize carbon emissions and strengthen historically marginalized communities facing the worst impacts of the climate crisis.


DMB is taking climate action on tour as a partner of Music Climate Revolution. In addition to taking steps with REVERB to reduce the environmental footprint of touring, the band has committed to calculating and addressing tour emissions not mitigated through other means.

Major sources of tour emissions including band and crew travel, hotel stays, gear transport, venue energy use, fan travel, and more, are calculated at the conclusion of the tour. In acknowledgement of those emissions, the band supports innovative third-party verified climate projects that measurably prevent, sequester, or reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
