Overall B Impact Scoreinfo_outline


The B Impact Scores are being compared against all businesses that have completed the B Impact Assessment

For more than two decades, Planet Bluegrass has worked to present the finest musical experiences in some of the country’s most magnificent natural environments while striving to reduce our environmental footprint at the same time.

Over the years, Planet Bluegrass has embraced some simple environmental solutions -- like providing free filtered water and waste reduction incentives and mandates at their festivals to cut down on plastic bottles and other trash. They’ve also embraced some complex ones -- like purchasing carbon credits to offset the greenhouse gas pollution produced by traveling to and from Telluride as well as renewable energy credits to offset our electricity consumption and support wind farms around the United States.

In the process, Planet Bluegrass has developed a reputation as a national leader in voluntary environmental action. One of their greatest hopes is that our voluntary efforts will inspire and encourage Festivarians to take action in their own communities. They believe, all of us together can lay the groundwork for the private sector and our political leaders, in this country and around the world, as we transition to a clean energy economy.
