Secret Solstice has just made history with the announcement of their certification as a CarbonNeutral® event. All CO2 emissions from production travel, as well as event waste, have been balanced with the corresponding purchase of verified carbon offsets from the rainforest conservation project Makira REDD+ in Madagascar.
However, Iceland’s premier music festival isn’t stopping there. In addition to CarbonNeutral® certification, Secret Solstice is implementing a geothermal energy program to provide 100% of its on-site energy needs from Iceland’s active volcanoes. Toyota Iceland will also provide hybrid vehicles to the festival for long-term usage over 9 months, and Icelandic Glacial will supply hundreds of biodegradable cardboard recycling bins over the festival’s four days in Reykjavík.
Seriously, Secret Solstice is going to be insane. For more information regarding tickets and their comprehensive efforts towards sustainability, click here.
