The global festival series has revealed details of a new partnership which will see it collaborate with SkyNRG, a global leader and pioneer in Sustainable Aviation Fuel. This means that all artists travelling to and from their international events will reduce CO2 emissions from flying, by replacing fossil fuel with SAF.
DGTL has long strived to improve sustainability across its festivals and has worked to ensure that its events operate in an environmentally friendly manner.
This latest announcement comes off the back of recent campaigns which have encouraged musicians and travelling artists to consider their behaviour when it comes to flying.
DGTL's sustainability manager Mitchell van Dooijeweerd commented on the announcement:
“We feel a responsibility to continuously improve and maintain our social and environmental impact on the globe and we are committed to leave the world a bit better than we found it. That’s why we are always researching and implementing innovative measures to progressively reduce emissions. But we’re looking beyond our own emissions too. Through this partnership with SkyNRG, we reduce CO2 emissions together with our artists and ensure that what we do inspires our surroundings. Replacing fossil kerosine with SAF is a huge step forward for unavoidable flights. Furthermore, it is a scalable solution that can reduce air travel emissions for other events too where air travel may be unavoidable. DGTL’s festivals have a huge reach, which is why it is important we lead by example and plant the seed for change.”
