SAG Awards® Honored with the Green Seal award the second year in a row.
Oct 18, 2010
Screen Actors Guild Awards® has been honored for the second consecutive year
with the Environmental Media Association (EMA)’s Green Seal, recognizing a
production’s outstanding efforts to implement sustainable initiatives and promote
environmental awareness. The EMA Green Seal was presented for the green
practices of the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® at the 20th Annual EMA
Awards on Saturday, Oct. 16, at Warner Brothers Studios.
The Environmental Media Association along with its partner, Green Seal, created
the EMA Green Seal Program to simultaneously promote sustainable production
methods and provide recognition for those in the entertainment industry who’ve
made strides in incorporating such practices. The Program includes film and
television productions as well as award shows and galas. The Program’s criteria
cover all facets of a production and provide a practical and comprehensive
guide to environmentally responsible filmmaking and event planning. In each
area of focus, the criteria include specific environmental actions in order to
help producers focus their greening efforts. The EMA Green Seal Program is
designed to be flexible enough that any production can potentially qualify,
regardless of budget or size. The Program is based on a self-assessment by the
production company on how well it complies with the Program criteria developed
by EMA and Green Seal.
In recognizing the SAG Awards® as a Green Seal honoree, the EMA stated:
“Congratulations to SAG and Jeff Margolis Productions for their ongoing efforts
to green the prestigious SAG Awards for the 2nd year in a row. They built upon
their environmental program from 2009 - which included a comprehensive
recycling and composting program, local and organic menu, reused stage
components and red carpets, and sustainable procurement - with additional
initiatives like red carpet hybrid service, a no-idling zone around the Shrine
Auditorium, and green crew gift. SAG’s dedication to reducing the Awards’
environmental footprint has allowed them to achieve a nearly zero-waste event.
In addition, SAG has limited production printing and is using double-sided
printing wherever possible. SAG is also committed to greening their
headquarters in Los Angeles and has embarked on a progressive program to reduce
the environmental footprint of the organization’s office operations.”
SAG Awards executives recognized by EMA for spearheading the production’s
environmental efforts were Kathy Connell, Producer; Mick McCullough,
Supervising Producer; Benn Fleishman, Executive in Charge of Production; Jon
Brockett, Awards Coordinating Producer; Chris Carr, Production Manager and
Carrie White, Publicity Manager.
The SAG Awards intends to continue and expand its green practices during this
year’s 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which will be simulcast live on
TNT and TBS on Sunday, Jan. 30, 2011. Nominations will be announced Thursday,
Dec. 16, 2010, telecast live on TNT and webcast on tnt.tv and tbs.com.
