Live Entertainment Strikes a Green Chord
JustGreen Lifestyle and Live Nation Sync Up to Offer Concertgoers a Carbon-Neutral Experience
Just Energy's carbon offset initiative JustGreen Lifestyle is pleased to announce Just Energy's partnership with Live Nation Entertainment's U.S. venue network. JustGreen Lifestyle will be Live Nation's exclusive carbon offset provider for consumable energies in their owned and operated venues, purchasing enough carbon credits to offset the emissions created at Live Nation clubs and amphitheatres across the United States. The green partnership will promote Just Energy's JustGreen carbon offsetting products to music lovers all across the United States and will provided Live Nation with more than 55,000 tons of carbon offsets annually -- which is the equivalent to removing close to 11,000 cars' emissions off the road.
Education is the First Step Towards Making a Difference
In addition to offsetting Live Nation venues, JustGreen will highlight the partnership with the launch of its new website www.justgreencommunity.com which offers insight and tips to help concertgoers green their lifestyles and reduce their carbon footprint on concert day.
"Partnering with Live Nation gives us a terrific opportunity to promote our JustGreen Lifestyle brand and showcase our carbon offset products to the biggest names in music today and millions of concertgoers," says Ken Hartwick, CEO, Just Energy. "We hope the partnership will motivate music lovers to take a proactive interest in making greener lifestyle choices."

"Partnering with JustGreen Lifestyle is another step in the right direction to conducting our business sustainably."
