    Other financial info

    IMPALA’s Climate Training and Standards project (IMPACTS) aims to build new climate literacy capacity for independent music companies in Europe to help them achieve a net zero carbon footprint.

    IMPALA has developed hands-on advice for its nearly 6000 members, SME music companies and self-releasing artists, as well as tools such as a bespoke carbon calculator (the first of its kind within in the music sector) with Julie’ s Bicycle, for members to track their footprint.

    The sector now needs training on how to use these new tools, to develop new capacity and skills at scale. IMPACTS will offer customised climate literacy training by international and local experts in 6 territories across Europe. You can find more information on the next climate training session here.

    In addition, the IMPACTS project will raise awareness of positive stories and best practices, as a catalyst for further change to promote climate optimism and the value of both individual and collective actions, see here.
