All industries are increasingly expected to look at their environmental impacts. As public service broadcasters, we have a responsibility to improve the environmental performance of the broadcasting industry and help it become more sustainable.
This new EBU group will include traditional broadcasting as well as newer forms of delivery including online delivery (which may be unicast / multicast). All parts of the media chain including production, delivery and consumption will be in scope, with sub-groups set up as necessary.
While consumption of media has biggest environmental impact it is harder for broadcasters to influence. However how media is consumed is closely linked to delivery, which broadcasters have control over.
Aims and objectives
1. To build a common view of the environmental impact of media, though sharing information between broadcasters
2. To identify specific activity and work areas, in (i) production and distribution, (ii) consumption
3. To act as a collective voice when liaising with industry and other bodies
- In keeping with other industries, EBU Members are called to deal with environmental issues in television and radio production and broadcasting. This work needs to take into account EU-level and ITU-level initiatives as well as broadcasters' own national requirements.
- • Guidelines on sustainable Production in co-ordination with Production groups FTV and FNS
- • Case studies for distribution and transmission
- • Seminar/workshop organisation
