Live Earth Carbon Assessment & Footprint Report

Live Earth 7707 aimed to have the event and leave a "zero net impact" in terms of generating greenhouse gases (GHG). After the Live Earth concerts, they calculated their estimated gross carbon emissions throughout a ten-month planning and execution process (including the concert day itself) at 19,708 tons. Live Earth is purchasing carbon offsets (greenhouse gas credits) to mitigate the portion of its carbon footprint that could not be avoided by energy reduction.

After an 11-week accounting and audit, the Live Earth Carbon Assessment & Footprint Report was published. The report shows you how they did it, what some other events have measured and where they think the industry should be in terms of carbon performance.
