We all have a vital role to play in preventing the climate crisis, and our future depends on the work we do today.
Our working practices and Award ceremonies
We acknowledge the importance and need to adopt a different approach to our work and awards in order to help reduce the effect on the climate.
From travel and food, to branding and materials, we ensure all our Awards are as sustainable as possible.
The EE British Academy Film Awards 2020 became the first BAFTA ceremony to be carbon neutral and albert certified. The red carpet was 100% recyclable, sustainably sourced produce was served at the awards dinner and branding that was not being reused from previous years was produced using reclaimed or recyclable materials. Where sustainable choices were unable to be made, BAFTA offset, as well as giving guests the tools to be more sustainable through offsetting their own travel and making sustainable fashion choices for the ceremony.
Since the start of the global pandemic we have delivered our Awards ceremonies digitally, both the Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards and the British Academy Television Craft Awards shows were fully albert certified in their new format and we are continuing to work towards our long-term goal of having a net-positive impact on the environment across all of our Awards.
BAFTA is a proud supporter of the Make My Money Matter campaign – meaning that employees pensions are only invested in schemes that align with BAFTA’s core values.
The BAFTA headquarters and offices are run on 100% renewable energy sources.
Since 2011, BAFTA has supported the film and television industry through albert, the leading screen industry organisation for environmental sustainability.
albert supports the global Film and TV industry to reduce the environmental impacts of production and to create content that supports a vision for a sustainable future.
The BAFTA-owned, industry-backed organisation offers online tools and training, events, practical guidance and thought leadership to all screen industry professionals to help them identify and act upon opportunities on and off screen which can lead to effective climate action.
The project has two aims:
1. Inspire; empower the industry to create content that supports a vision for a sustainable future
2. Restore: enable the industry to make positive contributions to the environment while actively eliminating waste and carbon emissions from production
