The BBC’s sustainability strategy and action plan is called “The Difference”. It focuses on how we run our business, as we strive to be a responsible steward of our human, natural and financial resources. Our aim is to embed sustainability into every day working practices across the organisation, and make a difference in the wider broadcasting industry by leading the way in sustainable programme productions.
We want to make a positive difference to both current and future generations.
To meet this goal and to exemplify best practice to our staff, audiences, business partners and fellow broadcasters, we have a five point plan.
We’re supported in this by senior managers across the organisation as well as by the efforts of dedicated staff. We’re committed to reducing our impacts on the natural environment, and have a series of targets to achieve. These include major reductions in carbon emissions from energy and transport and the reduction of water use and waste. You can see our progress to these targets here.
Our people are encouraged to make the difference and get involved in many ways, from using Albert, the BBC’s carbon calculator for productions, to participating in campaigns to increase recycling. We have a network of sustainability representatives across the organisation who lead by example and encourage their colleagues to do the same.
