The era of sustainable touring has started. Neste and Coldplay are moving towards sustainable touring with renewable fuels together.
Coldplay has pledged to cut direct GHG emissions by 50% compared to its previous tour. Neste provides Coldplay with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to help reduce emissions from air travels, while the company’s renewable diesel will help cut emissions from the band’s tour transports and stage power generation.
“We're really happy to partner with Neste to make our Music Of The Spheres World Tour as sustainable as possible. Their low-emission renewable fuels will play a major part in our efforts to minimise the tour’s climate impact,“ Coldplay says.
“We’ve tried to put sustainability at the center of this tour because it just feels like the only option,” says Coldplay’s Chris Martin.
