Each hour of television produced leaves a carbon footprint of 9.2 tonnes, which is the equivalent of two households’ annual consumption. This startling figure is the average across all genres – quadruple it for drama.
That was the top line given by Roser Canela Mas of Albert, the pan-industry body set up to help make television production sustainable, at an RTS panel discussion, “Producing sustainable TV – myth or reality?”.
President of Vice Studios Kate Ward discusses the studio's global content strategy and ambitions for 2021.
From drama to live broadcasts and everything in between - what does green TV look like?
Roser Canela-Mas, Industry Sustainability Manager, BAFTA / Albert, said that last year on average making an hour of TV in the UK was responsible for generating 9.2 tons of carbon.
This was equivalent to the annual carbon footprint of two UK households, she said, using gas and electricity.
Producing drama, which often involves filming overseas, had a greater impact – generating around 38 tons of carbon per hour.
