EMA Honors Our 2017-2018 ProductionsMaking Stories Sustainably Awards & Reports / Posted on June 15, 2018
The greatest backdrop in the business is our natural environment. That’s why, here at Warner Bros., we are dedicated to making our stories sustainably from script to screen. Through our green production program, our feature film and television productions integrate sustainable production measures into day-to-day operations to ensure that the future of storytelling is preserved for generations to come.
This year, the Environmental Media Association (EMA), a nonprofit dedicated to promoting environmental progress in the entertainment industry, recognized these efforts through two EMA Awards nominations and 18 EMA Green Seals. While the EMA Awards recognize content that increases public awareness of environmental issues, the EMA Green Seal is focused on sustainable production practices.
The following Warner Bros. productions demonstrated our studio’s commitment to protecting the environment. For the EMA Awards, two productions were nominated: Warner Bros. Pictures’ Geostorm in the Feature Film category and Warner Horizon Scripted Television’s Famous in Love in the Television Episodic Drama category. For the EMA Green Seal, 18 feature film and television productions were honored: Warner Bros. Pictures’ Fantastic Beasts: Crimes of Grindelwald and The Goldfinch, Warner Bros. Television’s The 100, Arrow, Black Lightning, Blindspot, The Flash, iZombie, Lethal Weapon, Lucifer, The Middle, Mom, Riverdale, Supergirl, Supernatural and Young Sheldon and Warner Horizon Scripted Television’s Famous in Love and Krypton.
By weaving in sustainable messages into story lines, conserving energy through efficient LED set lighting and reducing waste through the usage of reusable water bottles on set, our favorite feature film and television productions are leading the way towards a sustainable future in storytelling.
