In June 2010, BAFTA signed up to the 10. The project's aim was for participants to reduce energy usage by 10% in 2010, and this is on-going.
At 195 Piccadilly we achieved an actual 4.35% reduction in the year to the end of May 2011, this is within the context of our events business expanding by more than 25% over the same period.
Some of the ways we're trying to reduce our energy usage:
- BAFTA has a long-standing, company-wide recycling programme that covers our administrative offices as well as our members' bar and function facilities at 195 Piccadilly.
- In early 2010, we made as much of our lighting as energy-efficient as we could. By the middle of 2011 over 90% of our bulbs were energy-efficient at 195 Piccadilly and at our administration offices.
- Where possible, we aim to work with suppliers who have sustainability policies in line with our own
Looking beyond our operations and towards the promotion of a sustainable creative industry, BAFTA, in partnership with the BFI, host the biennial event Greening the screen, which explores the simple, achievable and affordable steps that can be taken to reduce the carbon footprint of film, TV or games production.
