PwC to 'audit' Live Earth carbon footprint

Firm to independently assess the body's carbon footprint methodology and reporting procedures

PricewaterhouseCoopers is to ‘audit’ the carbon footprint of
Live Earth.

The firm said it had been engaged to do an independent assessment of the
body’s carbon footprint methodology and reporting procedures. The Netherlands
firm is co-ordinating, it said.

The concerts, taking place at the weekend, are being staged to raise
awareness of environmental issues.

Richard Gledhill, climate change leader at PwC, said: ‘This is a very
significant event and a first of its kind. There are particular challenges in
managing, reducing and measuring the carbon footprint of a major concert. Many
of the issues are not, however, dissimilar to those that companies and
governments across the world are facing in all sectors of the economy. By
developing a best practice approach to how to organise major events on a low
carbon basis, Live Earth is really raising the profile of the importance of
measuring, and actively reducing, carbon footprints.’
