University of Manchester - Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research

The University of Manchester’s Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research partnered with the band Massive Attack to examine the music industry’s environmental impact. They analysed data from the band’s touring schedule to provide information and guidance to the wider music industry to reduce its environmental impact, resulting in the open-access Roadmap to Super Low Carbon Live Music. Massive Attack have designed six major emissions reduction modules for their 2022 tour, to trial them and model the practicalities, and to then bring their learning together in a major UK testbed live show. They are working with others to design bespoke partnerships with a wide variety of music arenas and venues, helping deliver a sustainable live music industry.
