Green Matthews Band

(PR) Dave Matthews Band announced today that it has arranged for NativeEnergy and Clean Air-Cool Planet to offset 100% of the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from all of its touring activities since 1991. By offsetting the CO2 pollution that touring activities such as transporting gear, powering stages and air travel generate, Dave Matthews Band is taking a proactive role in fighting global warming and helping Native America begin to restore sustainable homeland economies in balance with the Earth.

This announcement comes at the beginning of Dave Matthews Band 2006 summer tour, which kicked off on May 30th at the UMB Bank Pavilion in Missouri and will end in their hometown of Charlottesville, VA with a two-night stand on Sept. 22 & 23 at the grand opening of John Paul Jones Arena.

By announcing plans to offset 100% of the carbon dioxide emissions from all of its past touring activities, Dave Matthews Band is demonstrating how to turn attention toward positive solutions to global problems. Consumers everywhere can take the same proactive approach and visit www.nativeenergy.com to offset their travel, auto, home or business emissions by helping to build new renewable energy projects that reduce the amount of fossil fuels used to generate electricity.

�As artists we need to act now to slow global warming. Carbon offsets are one thing we can do to help and we felt working with NativeEnergy was a good place to start,� says Dave Matthews Band.
