Zurich / Lugano - Stagend, the platform where you can book any kind of live entertainer for any public or private event, announced today that thanks to a partnership with NValue AG, all live shows organized through Stagend will be powered by 100% renewable electricity.
There are many measures to be taken when you want to organize an event with a low impact on the planet. Culture and its operators have been wondering about this issue for some time and even in a time of deep crisis due to the ongoing pandemic, it is important to act and reflect. This in order to start with the right "foot", trying to limit its CO2 footprint and especially setting a good example to people who participate in cultural events.
The organizing phase of summer events is buzzing. "In this pandemic year we have often thought about the restart of cultural life," says Marco Alberti, CEO of Stagend.com "We expect a major wave of events as soon as possible. So we thought about making the electricity used by entertainers at our clients' events renewable. We care about respecting the environment, so we offer a solution to give organizers and artists the opportunity to reduce their impact during live events."
"Today, people are seeing more and more large corporations and multinationals commit to reducing their environmental impact and consuming renewable energy, and they appreciate that. But it's important to be aware that we all have an impact on the environment, and that we can all do our part to reduce it," continues Dania Piccioli, CMO of Nvalue, "and what sector if not the cultural sector is best suited and closest to the general public to take the lead and set a good example? Nvalue, as a Europe-wide renewable energy provider, has been committed to promoting the use of renewable electricity for years. The partnership with Stagend was therefore a natural choice, especially since it allows us to raise awareness among a very diverse audience. Stagend's customers are in fact private individuals, bars, restaurants, hotels, tourism organizations, private and public companies. We are therefore proud and happy to know that all the electricity consumed by the entertainers at the events organized by Stagend in Switzerland in 2021, will be 100% renewable, thus automatically allowing to reduce the environmental impact of these events."
Many initiatives and associations have sprung up in recent years in this area. The latest is the Swiss association "Vert le futur" - for a sustainable culture and events industry, which is committed to unite the various players in the industry by passing on best practices and developing new initiatives to raise awareness. Also the movement "Music Declares emergency" is growing in our latitudes with the aim of raising awareness: "no music on a dead planet" is the slogan of their campaign. With this pilot project, Stagend recognizes the environmental impact of events and is committed to improving its processes and raising awareness among organizers, entertainers and consequently their audience.
