Carbon offsets for NZSO activities

Michael Brown made this Official Information request to New Zealand Symphony Orchestra

Response to this request is delayed. By law, New Zealand Symphony Orchestra should normally have responded promptly and by (details and exceptions)

From: Michael Brown

Dear New Zealand Symphony Orchestra,

I am interested in how different cultural organisations in New Zealand are responding to the threat of climate change, in particular how they are mitigating the environmental impact of their own activities.

A large music ensemble which tours frequently, such as the NZSO, probably generates substantial carbon emissions.

Does the NZSO currently measure and offset its emissions? Or does it have any plans to offset these in future; or any other plans, policies or strategies around reducing its environmental footprint?

If you could please supply any reports or similar documents which help answer these questions, that would be appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Michael Brown

Thank you,
