environmental media awards, green seal, sony

We already knew Sony Pictures was stepping up efforts to bring more sustainable practices to the film set, and at last weekend’s Environmental Media Awards, that work was recognized with 12 EMA Green Seal Awards.

Eat, Pray, Love; SALT, The Green Hornet, The Social Network, Grown Ups, Karate Kid, Bad Teacher, Battle: Los Angeles, The Other Guys, Anonymous, How Do You Know, and Just Go With It were the films that scored the seal; which promotes “sustainable production methods and provide recognition for those in the entertainment industry who’ve made strides in incorporating such practices.”

In addition to a composting system in partnership with the City of Culver City, the studio has set it’s sights on “zero waste” for the main film lot, as well as pursuing sustainable practices across production, consumer products, employee programs and community outreach. More info on their greening efforts can be found here.
