Solidarity Eco Tax
ESNS 2022 launched a new initiative that invites our community to support our sustainability efforts. The Solitary Eco Tax invites visitors to make a financial contribution on top of the ticket price (€12.50 per registration), which is directly invested in various initiatives to diminish our C02 emissions. Efforts include Green Touring Support and our partnership with SkyNRG, who use Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) to reduce the net emissions of air travel and financially supporting certified reforestation projects.
Green Touring Support
To catalyse the normalisation of more sustainable travel options, ESNS launched Green Touring Support in 2022. Artists can propose their concrete transportation plans to the festival and we offer financial compensation – funded by the Eco Tax – for the difference between the conventional option (e.g. travel by aeroplane) and the greener option (e.g. travel by train). Touring artists cannot transport their own equipment by train, so these costs also cover the additional costs for renting equipment locally.
