Here’s how we are minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and planning to utilize resources more efficiently to protect our climate.
Calculating our carbon footprint.
Our team, with the support of a verified assessment and offsetting platform, is assessing the carbon footprint of our power, production, transport and waste. This assessment will be used internally to recommend strategies for us to shift toward a carbon neutral future!
Exploring energy efficient power plans
After measuring energy usage during the festival last year, the internationally renowned experts at ZAP Concepts have identified specific areas for power efficiency opportunities. An in-depth assessment of these areas will be completed this year for possible future implementation.
Exploring opportunities to offset our carbon footprint through regional projects
We are exploring opportunities to offset emissions by supporting regional projects through verified partners and platforms – while continuing our main focus on emissions reduction!
Rescuing food and supporting communities in need
Our volunteers will collect any rescuable food from vendors and catering after the festival to support Miami Rescue Mission, our partnering local homeless shelter. This reduces greenhouse gas emissions from food waste in landfills. No food left behind!
Providing local, vegan and vegetarian food options
We prioritize local food vendors and ask all vendors to provide vegan and vegetarian options for you to enjoy. Eating local and shifting towards a plant-based menu will reduce emissions from food sourcing, transport and animal agriculture.
Choosing local and domestic partners to create Ultra’s merchandise.
We prioritize local and domestic printing and embroidery companies to create as much of Ultra’s branded merchandise as possible, providing high-quality pieces while striving to reduce transport emissions.
Promoting sustainable transportation options.
We prioritize local food vendors and ask all vendors to provide vegan + vegetarian options for you to enjoy. Eating local and shifting towards a plant-based menu will reduce emissions from food sourcing, transport and animal agriculture.
