Jayda G, Caribou and Floating Points are among acts who have shared support for a new climate change initiative, Music Declares Emergency.
Coldcut, Mafalda, Jon Hopkins and countless other artists have also vocalised their support for Music Declares Emergency, an initiative that comprises "a group of artists, music industry professionals and organisations that stand together to declare a climate and ecological emergency and call for an immediate governmental response to protect all life on Earth."
Organisers said, "The continued rise in greenhouse gas emissions and the ongoing devastation of the natural world constitute a clear and present threat to life on Earth. That an immediate governmental response is necessary to protect all life from climate and ecological catastrophe. Music, musicians and music businesses, through their unique cultural and economic power, can lead the way in demanding the systemic changes required to secure all life on earth. We call on all those within the industry to join us in declaring a climate emergency and to work towards making the cultural and operational changes necessary to contribute towards a carbon-neutral future."
