I am a student researching the impact of environmental sustainability requirements on the Broadcasting Industry and in particular how this impacts independent program makers. In the UK the BBC have launched the 'Albert' program as a vehicle for auditing program production environmental impact. This initiative has been joined by all the other major UK Broadcasting organisations (SKY, ITV etc). I would be very interested to hear from the EEA or other European Broadcasting Organisations or other European Broadcast Producers to find out if there are similar environmental policies that are in play or are being proposed at an EU or National level.

Dear Natasha,

The EEA produces collects environmental data and produces reports on the state and trends of the environment in Europe. Environmental legislation is beyond the Agency’s working remit. The EEA neither sets nor enforces environmental policies.

I would like to refer you to the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Information Society and Media (INFSO), which is responsible for media policies and legislation.
On their website, you can find subsections dedicated to the environment and sustainable growth within the media industry:[…]/index_en.htm[…]/index_en.htm

If their website does not provide you with the information you need, you can contact DG-INFSO through their enquiry service:[…]/index_en.htm

Best of luck with your research, I hope this helps!
