AEG sets target for zero carbon emissions

By | Published on Wednesday 24 April 2019


Live music giant AEG has announced a goal to reduce its net carbon emissions to zero by 2050. This follows a previous commitment to reduce emissions by 25% by 2020.

“We are committed to leading the way toward change and continuing to help draw attention to this serious issue by doing more to ensure the safety of our world”, says John Marler, AEG’s VP Energy & Environment. “Today’s announcement builds on that commitment to further drive improvements in our global operations wherever possible. Meeting our current 2020 GHG goal is critical as it reflects the level of reductions required to achieve this longer-term target”.

“While we are pleased with the work we have done to date, we recognise that much more work needs to be done”, he goes on. “In addition to adopting our new 1.5˚c target for GHG emissions, we continue to look for ways to reduce potable water at water-stressed sites by 4.4% per year and diverting 70% of waste from landfill across all AEG operations”.
