Pearl Jam and Conservation


I'm going to a Pearl Jam concert tonight.
Who knew they are big into conservation and carbon offsets! Rock on!

ACTIVISM AND INFORMATION
Carbon Portfolio Strategy

The Carbon Portfolio Strategy is the newest component of our ongoing efforts to advance clean renewable energy and carbon mitigation. Through this Strategy, we will donate a total of $100,000 to nine organizations doing innovative work around climate change, renewable energy, and the environment.

We hope that by highlighting and creating a commons for these groups, we can advance preservation of existing ecosystems, restoration of degraded environments, and continued investment in clean, renewable energy technologies. Furthermore, by working with these groups and others to mitigate our own carbon emissions, we ultimately hope to get Pearl Jam at 0% net emissions for our tours and businesses.

INVESTING IN STRATEGIES TO MITIGATE CARBON—
IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST AND BEYOND

While the Carbon Portfolio Strategy has national and international components, the initial focus is on the Pacific Northwest -- our home. By identifying and supporting leaders in the environmental community, we hope to raise this region's carbon consciousness while also investing in a clean energy future.

We encourage you to identify and support leaders in your own community leading the charge for clean and renewable energy. In addition, we hope that you'll take a close look at how their daily activities contribute to the increasing amounts of carbon emissions in the air.
