Making Stories Sustainably Awards & Reports  / Posted on May 31, 2019

Our natural environment is the greatest backdrop in the business. That’s why, here at Warner Bros., we dedicate ourselves to sustainable storytelling from script to screen. Our green production program integrates sustainable measures into day-to-day operations of feature film and television productions. We work to preserve the future of storytelling for generations to come.

This year, our initiatives were recognized by the Environmental Media Association (EMA), a nonprofit dedicated to promoting environmental progress in the entertainment industry. The EMA acknowledged these efforts through an EMA Award nomination and 42 EMA Green Seals. The EMA Awards salute content that increases public awareness of environmental issues, while the EMA Green Seal concentrates on sustainable production practices.
