Green Music – da fallen einem Al Green, Fiddlers Green oder Green Day ein, aber auch das erste Greenville Festival, das gerade im Juli dieses Jahres vor den Toren Berlins erstmals über die Bühnen ging. Bei Greenville und der Idee der Macher ökologische Aspekte bei der Organisation zu beachten, ist man schon nahe dran an dem, was hier gemeint ist: green music, green clubbing, green festivals. Wer schon auf einer Musikmesse mit Flyern überschüttet wurde, die Lichtanlage einer Großraumdiskothek oder die Müllberge eines Festivals gesehen hat, ahnt, dass für eine bessere Ökobilanz einiges zu tun ist. Der Jahresstromverbrauch eines Clubs entspricht rund 40 Drei-Personenhaushalten, ein Festival hat den CO2 Fußabdruck einer Kleinstadt und die Besucher verursachen täglich die doppelte Menge Müll verglichen mit einem Durchschnittsbürger. Aber interessant ist auch, dass 48% der europäischen Fans mehr Geld für Greener Events ausgeben würden. Hier setzt das Team rund um Jacob Bilabel mit der Green Music Initiative an. Nicht mit erhobenem Zeigeﬁnger sondern mit kleinen, aber effektiven Schritten sollen Wege hin zu einer klimaverträglichen Musik- und Entertainmentbranche gefunden und gegangen werden.
GREEN MUSIC SOIRÉE 2012
Ein Beispiel dafür ist der Masterplan "Green Berlin Music Week" Schon 2010 wurde erstmalig ein Leitbild für eine umweltverträgliche und klimaschützende Berlin Music Week entwickelt. Die Vielzahl der Orte, Konzepte und Akteure stellt ein systematisches Umweltmanagement vor große Herausforderungen, um die nicht zu unterschätzenden Umwelteinwirkungen zu minimieren. Gemeinsam mit der Green Music Initiative haben die Veranstalter Lösungsansätze entwickelt, wie diese Herausforderung in Zukunft sinnvoll gemeistert werden kann. Und darin liegen Chancen. Die „Green Economy“ ist Wachstumsfaktor un Innovationsmotor, Ressourcenefﬁzienz wird zu einem immer wichtigeren Wettbewerbsfaktor. Green Music und Green Economy – das kann ein spannendes Duo werden, von dem wir in Zukunft gern mehr hören.
Founder of the Green Music Initiative
Harder. Faster. Greener Music Energy. During a recent visit to the SXSW conference in Austin / Texas I had meetings with three US Cleantech Start-Ups. Beside the all american tendency of hardselling their products I was taken by the perspective all of them had on the business opportunity they saw in climate change: "Climate change is one of the greatest wealth generating opportunities of our generation.“, said Robin working with Sir Richard Branson’s Carbon War Room (yes, that Branson). He put it as bluntly as I never had heard it before. Then he suceeded with: „Almost all technologies necessary to meet our global 2020 emissions reduction requirements exist today.“ Only market barriers would reinforce the status quo and prevent capital from ﬂowing to sustainable solutions with compelling returns. Being in Texas, the heartland of fossil fuel gulping mega heavy SUVs and ACs cranked on artic levels just for the fun of it (and home to Bush & Perry), that somehow naive view blew some fresh air into the room and my head.
Before that I felt that we could not solve the challenges ahead with the same mechanisms which created most of them („the ever growing business & markets way of thinking“). Is there really a market-driven solution to climate change as long as we have smart enough entrepreneurs to seize this opportunity? For most of my new friends I met in Texas, Germany was a blueprint for a smart new approach, a roadmap for other countries to follow. Besides „Kindergarten“ and „Autobahn“, they had learned a new German word in the last months: „Energiewende“. They understood the necessity to move away from dangerous or harmful ways of producing energy like nuclear or coal towards renewables. And instead of asking what it will cost, they saw it as an investment into the future, which will return with a beautiful margin for those who adopt early. As there will be no other way. When we came to talk about the energy efﬁciency work the GMI is doing with festivals, clubs and concert venues, we realized the lack of a genuine energy product tailored to the unique needs of the entertainment sector. Five beers later the idea for Green Music Energy was born. From 2013 on Green Music Energy will power all the things we love to do together. Regional. Decentralized. Competitively priced. And maybe even a bit faster & louder than your old energy. See you in the Grid. GREEN MUSIC SOIRÉE 2012

Managing Director of Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH
Large events are major sources of pollution: thousands of people travelling from all over the place, scores of taxis and cars that jam up the streets, ﬂyers, guides, programme booklets, masses of brochures, additional energy consumption that could easily supply a small town, unparalleled amounts of rubbish, a sea of material waste – the list goes on and on. However, alternatives do exist and greater care and awareness are called for in future, as shown by the numerous activities of the Green Music Initiative, an established partner of the Berlin Music Week since its foundation in 2010. Just how seriously issues such as reducing CO2 emissions, sustainability and environmental friendliness are being taken is being shown in a number of ways this year. As well as the Green Music Soirée, there are events such as the Clean Tech Media Award and the future workshop Ferropolis. There is also the best practice presentation of Velomax GmbH, a company which is demonstrating itself to be one of the pioneers in the event industry by drawing up a sustainability concept for running an event arena, which is currently being put into practice. Through the multitude of workshops and consulting services offered by the Green Music Initiative, together with our partners of the Berlin Music Week, we at Kulturprojekte Berlin have learnt a lot
GREEN MUSIC SOIRÉE 2012
about how we can turn green thinking into green actions. Examples of measures are event tickets which include public transport, shuttle services between event venues and greater use of digital media to avoid unnecessary amounts of paper for print publications. At the largest inner-city festival in Europe, the Berlin Festival at Flughafen Tempelhof, the event organisers have switched entirely to LEDs to reduce electricity consumption. We re-use advertising banners in the form of bags, deck chairs and other forms of seating. In the area of catering – also for participating artists – we make sure that regional partners and products are used. However, all these examples are just the beginning of the path to a Green Berlin Music Week. As event organisers, we believe that we have a responsibility to act as a role model and pioneer for our partners, consumers and music fans. We want to make the best possible use of this position. Mutual motivation within the music and culture industry is important to achieve the Eureka-effect, which will in turn be transferred to fans, festival-goers and clubbers, hopefully inspiring some of them to follow our lead.
Sales & Marketing Director of Velomax Berlin Hallenbetriebs GmbH
Sustainability and environmental issues are becoming more and more important in the management of venues. The venue managers of multipurpose arenas have taken quite a few years to catch up with the “new” demands of the environmental needs. Hotels and Congress Center were the ﬁrst once to follow the new demands in the industry and create new standards in venue operations. Our Management Team of MaxSchmeling-Halle was one of the ﬁrst in the industry who consciously decided to focus actively on sustainability and environmental conservation in the daily operation of our huge building. Therefore several employees of Velomax set up a “Green Team” two years ago.
The team is now meeting regularly to improve the green activities, to renew the Green Globe Certiﬁcate every year and to deﬁne which panels and exhibitions should be attended to gain knowledge, to expand the network and to share experiences. We are still in a constant process of studying and we are seeking for new inspirations to offer green events and to help our clients who rent the venue to arrange a “clean” event. We are very concerned to act authentic, transparent and veriﬁable and dissociate ourselves from “popular” green washing. We believe that the Green Music Soirée is a unique opportunity to share experiences and to gain more knowledge and inspiration in terms of green operations. To discuss innovative approaches in the music industry with selected highranking representatives of music, politics, science, media and environmental institutions can lead to concrete results in the protection of our environment, in saving costs and supporting social engagement.
GREEN MUSIC SOIRÉE 2012
Managing Director of 100 prozent erneuerbar stiftung
The German Energiewende does not only seek to transform the energy system but implies the transformation of society as a whole. The Energiewende is not a technical change process in the ﬁrst place, but asks for new concepts like sustainable growth, collaborative capitalism, reallocation of social power and participation in economic and political processes. They come along with a substantial shift of culture. New cultural patterns that go beyond the reduction of CO2 emissions and towards a more sustainable and better social life are emerging in our actual daily life through the Energiewende. Thus at 100 prozent erneuerbar stiftung we want to contribute to a better understanding of this cultural transition. We urgently need this interchange since the public debate about the Energiewende is increasingly being reduced to mere expert discussions focusing on very speciﬁc technocratic aspects that can’t be understood by the average citizen. We are at risk to ﬂatten the impressive social phenomenon Energiewende to an exclusive, hermetic, and sort of boring expert issue. However, there are many ways to awake the curiosity of the people in order to let them participate in this enormous collective challenge. And here is where culture and art come to play a crucial role, not only as diffusion canals but especially as
GREEN MUSIC SOIRÉE 2012
promoters and agglutinative agents of the Energiewende in peoples’ lives. That is why we are aware of the great importance of initiatives and activities like the Green Music Soirée, that mean to boost and to broaden the understanding of the signiﬁcance the energy transition has. Notably Berlin is becoming a doublecapital. Not only is Berlin the leading center for cosmopolitan culture, but is also about to become the capital of the Energiewende. This makes Berlin a unique venue for platforms like the Green Music Soirée, a hot spot for creating social transitions like the Energiewende. We believe that the German Energiewende is a social and borderless transformation issue. We are happy to become part of a community that invites many more people to get involved in this major cultural process. Music and all kinds of arts will become agents for a new social model of sustainability that ﬁnds its ﬁrst manifestation in the Energiewende.
Chief Executive Ofﬁcer of WindMade
WindMade is proud to support the Green Music Soirée. We believe that increased sustainability in music events can have massive beneﬁts not only for the environmental impact of festivals, but also for a more positive reputation with festival goers, for environmental innovation and for better environmental awareness both inside the industry and towards the public. Events are highly resource intensive, and, if there are not managed carefully, can have negative environmental consequences. We are therefore delighted to see that there is a trend towards hosting events in a more environmentally, socially and economically responsible way. WindMade is the ﬁrst global label for events, products and companies that use wind power, and as part of our commitment to renewable energy, we stand ready to help the events industry green their power consumption.
Since February 2011, the WindMade label can be applied to events that procure 100% of their electricity from renewable power. For many conference organisers that are already making efforts to green their events, WindMade now offers a credible label certifying their commitment to renewable power. This will resonate strongly with the public and help differentiate events in a meaningful way. Wind energy is a growing power source in many parts of the world, and in some countries such as Denmark, Spain and Portugal, wind power now contributes more than a ﬁfth of the overall power generation. Since 2000, wind power represented nearly a third of all new power stations in the EU, and in 2011, more than 70% of all new power generation was renewable. This shows that wind and other renewable technologies have well and truly entered the mainstream for electricity generation. The objective of WindMade is to raise awareness to the great environmental, economic and social beneﬁts of wind power and other renewable energy sources, and to help foster a more positive association in consumers’ (and festival goers’!) minds. By working with the music events industry, we believe that we can achieve both, and cooperation with the Green Music Initiative is an important step into this direction.

Founder of FUTURZWEI. Stiftung Zukunftsfähigkeit
There is a social movement, which does not yet know of its own existence. This sentence is not as absurd as it ﬁrst appears to be: All social movements, from the American civil-rights movement to the feminist movement, were at ﬁrst mostly invisible, except for a few prominent activists. They were mainly made up of a latent community; the members of which neither realised that they were part of a group nor that were contributing to a shared project of reformation. This is also the case for the current movement which is attempting to win back the future. The protagonists of this movement have one particular characteristic in common: they are young and, rightly so, worried about the future; not only about their own futures, but about the conditions for survival of mankind as a whole. Their quest applies to the loss of a viable future and especially to ﬁghting against a life-style and a consumer culture, the environmental results of which threaten to put the whole climatic system at risk. It is a counter movement against the global culture of irresponsibility. That this counter movement is primarily borne by younger people is no coincidence: they are the ones who still have a future to lose and they are also the ones for whom the Internet and social networks are not just a communication media, but are also an organisational media.
GREEN MUSIC SOIRÉE 2012
Still, actual protest and real change always have locations and occasions. In the same way that in today’s digital world beer is still served in a bar, so too should a movement against the destructive business-as-usual have its places, span distances and be bound to real people who, wherever they are organise ﬂash mobs, create petitions, ride their bikes to so called Earth Summits, lobby politicians, organise concerts and parties or even green festivals. A political movement is always a matter of social learning and the establishment of common ground: to overcome resistance, to reach goals, to have fun, to make friends – this far more a part of the creation of social movements than than the ongoing Power Point presentations about CO2 emissions, the incessant calculation of carbon footprints and scientiﬁc reasoning to explain what every seven year old child is able to plainly see: that endless resource consumption is not possible in a ﬁnite world. It is about experimenting with social practices that seek for an escape out of a culture of resource depletion and the oblivion of the future and to consequently pave the way for according concepts. This might not seem very powerful, but this is, as stated before, the way all social movements started out before they changed the world. They are always driven forward by minorities and ﬁve percent of a population is easily enough to set movements in motion.
The Green Music Initiative acts as a pan European platform coordinating the music and entertainment industryâ€™s efforts to minimise their climate impact. CO2-reduction strategies are implemented in close cooperation with scientiďŹ c institutes, stakeholders and
artists, paving the way for others to follow. GMI showcases best practise with the objective to create industry wide demand for innovative and sustainable solutions â€“ both from the climate and business point of view.

WindMade is the first global consumer label for companies, events and products using wind energy. www.windmade.org
The WindMade label gives companies the ability to communicate their commitment to renewable energy in an intuitive and credible way, by being part of an independent certifi cation programme. Many brands have already made strong statements on this, but until now, they did not have the ability of credible, independent certification of their claims. WindMade now provides this tool. Labels are a powerful tool for differentiating a company, enhancing brand perception and guiding consumer behaviour. The WindMade label gives consumers the opportunityto choose companies and products that are in line with their own values. By making informed decisions, they will reward companies that have a clear commitment towards sustainability and renewable energy.
WindMade was first introduced in 2011 by its founding partners (UN Global Compact, WWF, Vestas Wind Systems, the Global Wind Energy Council and the LEGO Group). Bloomberg is the official data provider, and PwC the official WindMade verification partner. The WindMade Company Label, which was launched in October 2011, communicates the percentage of wind electricity as a share of the overall electricity consumption of a companyâ€™s operations. To qualify, companies must pledge to source a minimum of 25%of their electricity consumption from wind power. According to the technical standard,this can be achieved through a company-owned wind power generation facility, along-term power purchase agreement for wind power, or the purchase of high quality Renewable Energy Certificates approved by WindMade. For maximum transparency, the exact percentage of the wind energy share will be stated on the label. Companies can choose to certify global, regional or even facility level operations, a distinction that will be clearly communicated on the label itself. Motorola Mobility, Deutsche Bank, BD, Method, the LEGO Group and Bloomberg were among the first companies to sign up to use the Company Label.
GREEN MUSIC SOIRĂ‰E 2012
The Berlin Music Week is a five-day, city-powered constellation of music showcases, concerts, parties, conferences, panels, seminars and networking opportunities. As a hosting city, Berlin furthers its role as creative provocateur, with curated offerings that provide audience and professionals a compact panorama of what's trending in the international music industry. Berlin Music Week is designed and coordinated by Kulturprojekte Berlin and supported by the Senate Department for Economy, Technology and Research, Berlin Partner and visitBerlin. www.berlin-music-week.de
GREEN MUSIC SOIRĂ‰E 2012
Berlin is a renowned city of transition. For more than twenty years, she has grown, lolled and changed in her role as a music capital, simultaneously setting global trends. The city changes at a dizzying pace and change is good if you see and take advantage of the substance you find here. Celebrated worldwide as one of the most interesting spots for creativity, innovation, originality, uniqueness and authenticity – not least because of its pioneering mix of music industry, festivals and club events – Berlin sets a matchless international standard. A variety of music events are held year-round, all them catering in different ways to the countless interests, needs and expectations of event organisers, associations, networks as well as consumers. Nevertheless, because of the large number of individual efforts and activities, the communicative impact both inside and outside the city is too weak to truly, effectively put Berlin on the map as THE international music capital in the world. With Berlin Music Week, the city has a platform, the activities, commitment, diversity, passion, synergies, communication and charisma tied into one. This broad and cooperative presentation reinforces Berlin’s standing as an international music hotspot both within the city and beyond. Supervised directly by Kulturprojekte Berlin GmbH, from September 5-9 Berlin Music Week will become not only a communicative, but organisational framework for the activities of its local and international partners. The project is supported by the Senate Department for Economics, Technology and Research, Berlin Partner and visitBerlin.
Green Berlin Music Week: After two successful years of cooperation, the Berlin Music Week and the Green Music Initiative put together a new, diverse programme for 2012. Covering events including inspiring network evenings, panel discussions on recent developments, presentations of innovative ideas and an award ceremony. All events follow the aim to boost the idea development processes and their actual implementation for a greener music and entertainment industry. Come and be inspired!

15 years ago the MaxSchmeling-Halle in Berlin opened to the public. Since then it has become one of the leading arenas of the capital and in the country. In total, 1,100 events have taken place at the arena - ranging from national and international concerts of all types; extraordinary stage and television shows; and sporting events including 18 World Championships. Such events have attracted more than 10 million spectators. www.max-schmeling-halle.de
GREEN MUSIC SOIRÉE 2012
Sustainability and environmental conservation in Live Entertainment Business are no contradiction at Max-Schmeling-Halle Berlin. The Management Team of Max-SchmelingHalle follows the Motto Avoiding. Decreasing. Balancing. Given the venue’s size and subsequent impact on the environment, the management of Max-Schmeling-Halle was one of the first in the industry who consciously decided to focus actively on sustainability and environmental conservation in the daily operation of the building. Max-SchmelingHalle is a pioneer regarding green building operations and is taking this role and its responsibilities extremely serious. The Max-Schmeling-Halle is integrated into a park landscape on the grounds of the Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn Sports Park and is called the “Green Bridge” as it connects former East and West Berlin with its green and rounded down roof. It is directly situated in a densely occupied neighborhood with which the venue management works closely regarding “Field-Development.” It has very good traffic links. There are 1,064 solar collectors installed on the roof of the arena which produce 225 Mwh per year.
energy saving facts also brought along by its forward looking architect Jörg Joppien who build the arena in 1997. Examples of “green operation”: • Gentle use of water and energy • Use of daylight for loading and production set up • 1.064 Solar collectors on roof • Waste reduction and separation in all divisions • Energy savings through renewal of control technologies (use of LED displays instead of ordinary lamps) • Reduction of carbon dioxide emission through cooperation with local suppliers • Environmentally friendly facility cleaning by using green certified detergents • Closely cooperate with surrounding neighborhood to commonly develop other “green operation” processes • Closely cooperate with the Senat of Berlin to fulfill the sports and cultural guidelines of the City of Berlin • Preconditioning of outside air for heating and cooling The Max-Schmeling-Halle is a “Green Globe” certified arena. It is the first multipurpose arena of this size in Germany that earned the EVVC Certification in 2010 and 2011.
The elegant architecture meets both high aesthetic standards and sustainable standards. For example, the northern side glass facades. These facades allow production set up works during daylight. Thermal insulation and the preconditioning of outside air before it is heated up and used inside the venue are

Our road map for 100% renewable energy is also very clearly defined. It is faster and cheaper to achieve than the plans of the German government. At the same time, it is environmentally friendly, efficient, and involves public participation. www.100-prozenterneuerbar.de

Leading the way for the energy of the future
GREEN MUSIC SOIRÉE 2012
We can achieve the goal of our plan with a distribution of decentralized renewable power plants across Germany. Decentralized means power that is generated close to the area where it is used, or in the vicinity of towns and cities. This reduces the costs entailed in expanding the grid and makes acceptance higher because people can directly profit from the creation of value where they live. Decentralized power production also enables us to work in close harmony with the environment – energy parks blend in with natural surroundings.
For the environment renewable energy is clean and green. Environmental sustainability is not a goal, but a fundamental principle that underlies everything else. We stand for an integrated approach to environmental protection, species conservation and the expansion of renewable power plants.
Working areas: • Intelligence • Education • Local Networks • Science
For the consumer power has to remain affordable. The heat and electricity generated from renewable sources will become cheaper and cheaper – all the more so when it is produced in the right locations. We argue the case for greater efficiency in the funding of renewable energy projects.
Our concept of 100% renewable energy can be achieved with the following considerations: For the future we know the fastest way to achieve 100% renewable energy production. Monopolies on the energy market should be a thing of the past. Consumers will become free “prosumers” with a choice of energy supply, which they will also produce themselves. We support public involvement in the energy revolution from the grass-roots level up.
With the region local businesses stand to do well. Decentralized renewable power plants create employment and promote local development. We support the creation of value at the regional level across the board.
Renewable energy is safe. It is available in unlimited supply, it does not require the use of life-threatening technology, and it makes the consumer less dependent on imported energy. Furthermore, renewable energy that is produced close to the consumer reduces strain on the grid. Whether you look at it from a political, social or rational perspective, there is no alternative to 100% renewable energy.
