Sustainability for PSM

Collaboration with Members to understand sustainability and how to implement it, in order to deliver business transformation.

Research shows that televisions and associated devices are responsible for about 1.4 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.  In addition, all the services used to gain audiences such as personalisation and use of AI, has a compounding effect.  As public service broadcasters, we have a responsibility to improve the environmental performance of the broadcasting industry to make it more sustainable. 

EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan

Every two years, the EBU develops a roadmap for technology and innovation activities based on the requirements and inputs given by EBU Members. The result of this roadmap is our bi-annual EBU Technology & Innovation Workplan. Strategic programmes and project groups are set up to focus on specific areas of interest.
