The Carbon Footprint of Taylor Swift’s 2024 Eras Tour

We're Here to Help

Fans around the world are eagerly awaiting Taylor Swift’s return to the stage as she gears up for her highly anticipated 2024 Eras Tour. But what’s the environmental impact of this massive undertaking? We found the projected carbon emissions of Taylor Swift’s upcoming tour and compared them to those generated by other celebrities’ private jet travel in 2023.

Using data from the myclimate Carbon Tracker, we’ll estimate the total distance Swift will travel during her tour and the resulting CO2 emissions, assuming no detours. For context, we’ll also examine which celebrities emitted the most CO2 from their private jet travel between January and November 2023. Our findings reveal the carbon footprint associated with major music tours and the impact of private jet travel on the environment.

Key Takeaways

  • Taylor Swift will fly an estimated 43,688 kilometers for her 2024 Eras Tour, excluding detours.
  • Taylor Swift’s 2024 Eras Tour travel will emit an estimated 511,154 kilograms of CO2, assuming no detours.
  • The estimated travel emissions from Taylor Swift’s 2024 Eras Tour are equal to the annual energy use emissions of 66.7 homes.
  • Private jet travel by Travis Scott (6.06 million kilograms of CO2), Kim Kardashian (5.86) and Elon Musk (4.56) emitted the most CO2 from January to November 2023.
  • The top 20 celebrities emitting the most CO2 from private jet travel from January to November 2023 produced a total of 62.69 million kilograms of CO2.

Taylor Swift’s 2024 Carbon Footprint

According to the EPA Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, Taylor Swift’s estimated emissions from private jet travel for her 2024 Eras Tour (511,154 kg of CO2) are equivalent to:

  • 1,307,311 miles driven by an average gasoline-powered passenger vehicle
  • 122 gasoline-powered passenger vehicles driven for one year
  • 66.7 homes’ energy use for one year
  • 33,744,692 smartphones charged

Private Flights’ Environmental Impacts

Visiting 23 national and international cities — including London twice — Taylor Swift will fly an estimated 43,688 kilometers (27,146 miles) for her 2024 Eras Tour. This study assumes her take-off and return point is Kanas City, Missouri, and excludes any detours she might take.

From January to November 2023, private jet travel by the top 20 highest-emitting celebrities produced a combined 62.69 million kilograms of carbon dioxide emissions. Among them, Travis Scott emitted the highest amount at 6.06 million kilograms of CO2 from his private jet travel during that period, followed by Kim Kardashian at 5.86 million kilograms and Elon Musk at 4.56 million kilograms, making up the top three highest individual emissions totals.


To estimate Taylor Swift’s private jet emissions for her 2024 Eras Tour, we made the following assumptions:

  • Her travel will commence from Kansas City, Missouri.
  • Her return will be to Kansas City, Missouri.
  • There will be no detours throughout the duration of the tour.

We also leveraged the myclimate Carbon Tracker to calculate the emissions of private jet travel and the celebrities who emitted the most CO2 when flying private from January to November 2023.
