Hit US TV series 24, have announced that they drastically reduced their carbon footprint for the current seventh season of the show.
The show’s Carbon Footprint was cut by 43% through greener efforts by all on the cast and crew.
According to FOX, “nearly a year after announcing its aim to reduce its carbon footprint and inspire its viewers to do the same, ’24,’ the Emmy Award-winning series from Imagine and Twentieth Century Fox Television, has far exceeded its carbon-reduction goals and will be the first television production ever to achieve carbon neutrality.”
“This is a passion project for us at ’24,’ and we’re amazed by how much we were able to achieve this past season in terms of conserving energy and reducing carbon emissions,” commented Howard Gordon. “But now the really important work begins, which is to inspire our audience to make changes in their own lives.”
“We are so proud as a studio of Howard, Kiefer and everyone at ‘24,’” commented TCFTV Chairmen Newman and Walden. “They brought their trademark intensity and enthusiasm to the task of figuring out how to make the show more efficiently and with less impact on the environment, and they succeeded beyond anyone’s expectations. This show will serve as a model to all our productions and to the industry overall of how we can bring television production into the 21st century and reduce Hollywood’s carbon footprint. And it will keep the conversation going with our audiences around the world that global warming is a problem we all can do our part to solve.”
“We applaud the producers, the studio, the cast and the crew for taking the lead and becoming the first carbon neutral television production,” said Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, who is also a California Trustee of the Nature Conservancy and on the board of the Environmental Media Association. “The ‘24’ team sets the bar high for delivering quality television every week and now they have also set a standard of responsibility which hopefully will inspire others to follow. We are proud to air PSAs educating our viewers about climate change and hope that these spots will help raise awareness and encourage others to follow ‘24’’s lead.”
