In 2007 a group of influential people from the music industry formed Julie's Bicycle, an organisation dedicated to reducing the industry's greenhouse gas emissions. They brought Catherine on board, who identified three main areas of emissions: live music venues, audience travel and CD manufacturing.

Here, Catherine visits the Indigo at the O2 in London and meets with the venue's operations manager to look at what energy saving measures the venues are taking.

Julie's Bicycle discuss the problems with trying to reduce audience travel emissions, how the carbon footprint of CDs can be reduced by 95 per cent and how renewable energy sources may be the only way to ensure a low carbon future.
