Radiohead Appeal Over Carbon Impact

Radiohead are appealing to fans to think about the environmental impact of how they travel to and from shows, as they embark on the first leg of their 2008 tour.

Last year the band commissioned carbon footprint analysts Best Foot Forward to calculate the carbon impact of two of their US tours from 2003. The report found that fan travel to and from the shows makes the greatest impact on the CO2 generation of a tour.

Radiohead said they were encouraging fans to consider public transport or increased car sharing. Where possible, the band has booked city centre shows with good transport links to make it easier for fans to get out of the car.

A new section on the Radiohead website has been set up offering travel information to the venues. Fans can plan their journey by visiting an online calculator, which shows the CO2 generated by different methods of transport.

After the tour, ticket holders will be invited to submit information on their methods of travel so more research can be done in this area.

Radiohead's production crew will also be posting information on how the band are trying to reduce their own touring carbon emissions without compromising the quality of the shows.
