Universal Music UK and Abbey Road Studios now powered by Ecotricity
Music recorded at Abbey Road Studios will now be powered by the wind and the sun, after the UK’s leading music company – Universal Music – switched supply to green energy company Ecotricity.
Ecotricity will supply green electricity to four of Universal Music UK’s key London locations, including its Kensington High Street HQ and Abbey Road studios, the oldest purpose built recording studio in the world.
Dale Vince, founder of Ecotricity, said: “Powering a business with green energy is the biggest single step that any business can take to cut the emissions that cause air pollution and climate change.
“Simply by switching to green energy, Universal Music UK will reduce the environmental impact of their own operations – while also supporting Britain’s energy independence and the green economy.”
Universal Music UK recently achieved three-star certification under the Industry Green sustainability kitemark, awarded to creative organisations with a systematic, achievable and inspiring approach to environmental sustainability.
Universal Music UK COO, David Sharpe,said: “Universal is committed to sustainability, as are many of our artists, and we hope other organisations will follow our lead and take similar steps to power their operations with green energy.”
