Transportation plays a key role in Public Service Media (PSM). As with most organizations, their employees' commute to and from work has an environmental impact, but in addition PSM has the factor of creating their offerings. The planning and production of content is increasingly done independently from the company’s physical locations. The scope of business trips required for planning and production is affected by this just as much as the mobility of employees to the company’s site.

This report contains an overview of current European measures that are being taken, or that are planned to improve sustainability in all forms of transport. It also gives information on several EBU members’ initiatives toward greening their transport use in conducting their broadcast businesses.
