PROVINSSI IS CARBON NEUTRAL

As the calculations were recently finished, Provinssi can now confirm that it has reached its environmental goal by reaching the status of a carbon neutral festival by the summer of 2019.

The carbon footprint for Provinssi 2019 was 265,8 tons CO₂ equivalent in total which equals, for example, to 1,7M kilometers driven by car in its emission. The carbon
footprint of a single Provinssi festival goer is 3,63kg CO₂ e which equals to 1,5 coffee packages in its emission.

The calculations for Provinssi’s carbon footprint include factors in the traffic emission within passenger travel and logistics, energy consumption, purchases and waste disposal. Factors such as food sales, the festival's own merchandise and customer travel were left out of the calculation because of the inability of Provinssi to impact those directly.

The carbon footprint of Provinssi was compensated by a donation equal to its emissions to support a sustainability project aiming to slow down deforestry in Uganda. This Gold Standard certified project aims to replace cooking appliances running on non-renewable biomass by cleaner and more energy effective boilers. These new boilers lessen the need to cut down forests, save carbon sinks, and support the diversity of the local nature. The use of the new boilers also improves the local social conditions by, for example, creating savings for the families due to lower fuel costs, improving the air quality, and creating new jobs. A single new boiler lessens the carbon emissions by an estimated 2,5 tons of CO₂ per year. The donation by Provinssi enables more than 100 new boilers to be taken into use.

Following the renewed Ekokompassi enviroment certificate and program, Provinssi has updated its enviromental policy for the upcoming three years. In its policy Provinssi has set goals to give up disposable plastic on the festival site, reduce the waste in Camp Provinssi by half, lower the logistic and traffic emission significantly, and communicate all environmental actions as transparently as possible. These goals are aimed to be reached by the time Provinssi 2022 has closed its gates. Find more information about Provinssi’s environmental acts and goals here: www.provinssi.fi/environment

Provinssi is committed to its promise of a more sustainable future and will continue to hold on to its status as a carbon neutral festival. From now on, Provinssi will examine and compensate its emissions on a yearly basis.
