Rock City Stage Crew Tackle Travel Impacts

Rock City Stage Crew provides skilled & semi-skilled crew to the live events industry -ecolibrium have worked with Rock City Stage Crew since 2015, helping them to record the impact of their travel to some of their key client’s events and balance this impacts with investment into our Energy Revolution programme. The team at Rock City also have a commitment to tackling their overall carbon footprint and in 2015 they set out to become Carbon Neutral throughout their operations. 

The first step was establishing an environmental policy. They recognised that transport was a big area to tackle – crew travel makes up a considerable percentage of Rock City’s overall impact and they have committed to updating their whole fleet with low emission vehicles. In 2019 they fitted 9 Ford Tourneos with the new 2 Litre Panther EcoBlue Engine, which exceeds the current 2017 European Emission Standards, and they are converting three old site- tippers to take recycled biodiesel, which they hope to process in-house. Rock City have also worked with ecolibrium’s Energy Revolution programme to calculate their fossil fuel use from transport to three events each year and balance these emissions with investment in projects that create clean renewable energy.
