 Treasure Island Music Festival 2009.  Carbon offsets and calculations

   

October 17 & 18, 2009

Treasure Island, San Francisco

Carbon Harmony has partnered with the Treasure Island Music Festival to take the fight against climate change up to 11™. Every ticket buyer is given the option to add a dollar to their ticket price to offset their portion of the event's carbon emissions. This will include:

Carbon Emissions for a 50 mile round trip by a 17 mpg car, Indirect Emissions for 2 Hamburgers, 2 Beers, and 1 attendees share of all the band's estimated travel emissions to and from the show.

How does it work?

This year, Carbon Harmony will be funding projects that reduce GHG emissions. They will include methane collection and combustion projects that work to convert methane gas from animal waste into clean electricity. This internationally recognized process offers two benefits: GHG reduction and renewable energy generation. Chicago Climate Exchange verifies and approves the procedures to ensure they comply with international protocols.

For more information, visit our Calculation Estimates page.

*The estimated figures for fuel consumption, energy consumption, and the resulting GHG emissions are based on attendance and energy data from Treasure Island Music Festival and the official statistics from the U.S. government, made available by the U.S. Department of Energy and Energy Information Administration.
