Our recent Music Ally TV Show sustainability episode offered plenty of encouragement for music companies thinking about cutting their emissions. Now BMG has been talking about its efforts on this front.
The company says it has offset the more than 3,000 tons of carbon dioxide produced by its activities in 2019, including offsetting its emissions by investing in climate protection projects in Brazil, planting around 42,000 trees as part of reforestation work.
BMG also said it’s still collecting data to assess its carbon footprint for 2020, but work is already underway to switch all its offices – remember offices, everyone? – to 100% green electricity, with more energy efficiency actions and offsetting also planned. The company also says it is going to “work with suppliers to further reduce emissions in manufacturing and distribution across the physical and digital supply chains”.
