IMPALA has a sustainability task force with Horst Weidenmueller as its chair. The task force’s work focuses on helping the European sector co-ordinate on how to green business practices and of course seeking to reduce IMPALA’s own footprint. 


IMPALA’s work also focuses on supporting notable initiatives like Music Declares Emergency and promoting its work. Music Declares Emergency (MDE) received IMPALA’s outstanding contribution award at the end of 2019. We also signed MDE’s declaration committing to share expertise, speak up and work towards making our business ecologically sustainable and regenerative. 


With MDE and Julie’s Bicycle, IMPALA met EC Vice President responsible for climate action, Frans Timmermans as well as Mariya Gabriel, the commissioner responsible for culture, youth, research and innovation.
