Dubai venue to host 100% environmentally sustainable rock concert

Dubai venue to host 100% environmentally sustainable rock concert
November 6, 2019

Being held at the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium on 15th November, Rock the World/Save the Planet, which has been created by Neutral Fuels, is set to become the first 100% environmentally sustainable rock concert with a net zero carbon footprint.

Rock the World/Save the Planet is part of Neutral Fuels’ plan to help people understand how we can create a post-carbon world.

Karl W Feilder, founder and Chief Executive of Neutral Fuels, advised that Rock the World/Save the Planet will show how 6,000 people can enjoy a great concert without contributing to climate change noting "ordinarily, a rock concert with its massive sound, complex lighting and special effects, emits tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere using energy from the national grid. Rock the World/Save the Planet is different. It will achieve net zero carbon emissions by using Neutral Fuels B100 net zero biofuel to power the entire event.”

To neutralise unavoidable carbon emissions, such as flights for the bands coming to Dubai, Neutral Fuels is partnering with One Tree Planted. All unavoidable carbon expended on behalf of the event will be accurately measured and offset by planting trees to absorb every bit of it, he added.

Neutral Fuels said it is also partnering with DGrade who will collect all plastic from the event and convert it into sustainable yarn to produce clothing and accessories.

Rock the World/Save the Planet's line-up includes Cueshé, multi award-winning pop rock band from Manila, Philippines, Razorback, a hard rock band which has opened for the likes of Rage Against the Machine and Metallica, Urbandub, from Cebu City, Philippines and Sandstörm, a Dubai rock cover band which features Feilder as lead singer.

Almost a decade ago, Neutral Fuels claimed it was the first to pioneer 100% pure, European-compliant net zero biofuel for use in cars, trucks, buses and generators.
