Sustainability Update

Find out what we've been doing to reduce the carbon footprint of our productions in our latest Sustainability Update


Environmental and sustainability issues have long been reflected in the programmes and content we make and broadcast, and it is important to us that thay are also embedded in the way we operate and run the BBC.

The Difference is our approach to sustainability. We want to:

  • Drive innovation in our core business in order to lead the broadcasting industry in sustainable production
  • Continually work to reduce the impacts of our operations, through targets which address our environmental footprint and save the BBC money
  • Inspire our staff to exemplify sustainable behaviour in all that they do.

For the latest about what the BBC is doing, please refer to pp 31-35 of the 2013 Corporate Responsibility Review (see Sustainability Downloads to the right of this page).
