The Difference 

Our sustainability strategy is called The Difference. And by working here you’ll be given the tools and the support to help us drive down our energy use, CO2 emissions and water consumption.

Our TV and radio production can have a huge impact on the environment. As can our travel and running our state-of-the-art buildings. But we’re working hard to change this.

That’s a big challenge and we won’t get there overnight. We need like-minded people to help us.

Towards greener TV

In 2010 we developed albert, the world’s first TV production carbon calculator. And now with help from BAFTA we’ve given everyone in the UK broadcasting industry access to our technology.

We’ve also introduced albert+ certification. Albert+ helps production teams make their programmes in more sustainable ways, keeps track of their achievements, and then rewards them with an albert+ rating.
