How Film and Television Are Adapting to Climate Change

Hear from Carys Taylor, Director of BAFTA’s albert programme, as we explore the issues of climate change and sustainability through the lens of film and television.

The film and television sector may not have the biggest carbon footprint, but it still has an important role to play in the transition to net-zero. With 70% of the global population owning a TV, the film and television industry can have a significant influence on public debate.

Moreover, changing demographics and technology are pushing the industry to consider the viewing habits and preferences of a younger, more climate-conscious generation. That’s why in today’s episode, we’ll take a closer look at the challenges and opportunities facing this sector, including:

  • The decarbonization of the $200bn per year content production industry,
  • How it is adapting to changes in the way we watch and consume content,
  • And the challenge of using its influence responsibly.
