EMG becomes OB Truck’s first broadcast service provider recognized for sustainability
EMG, an European broadcast service provider, has recently announced that is has become the first OB specialist to achieve the DPP Committed to Sustainability mark.
The DPP Committed to Sustainability is a programme that promotes good practice in environmental sustainability across the media industry.
EMG revealed that the company has made significant investments in infrastructure to support more sustainable live productions, with a focus on remote production workflows as well as tracking power and energy efficiency in its vehicles and equipment. EMG is also assessing the efficiency of all its sites as well as possibilities such as battery power and cloud-based systems.
“We are proud of the changes we have made and will continue to make to better support sustainable production. Our new fleet which is currently being built, has sustainability at the heart of its design, and we will continue to use HVO Green D+ fuel in our OB trucks – a change which has already saved 300 tonnes of emissions in one year. All these practices support our ongoing efforts to reach a Net Zero target” said Rohan Mitchell, Group ESG Director, EMG. “While there is a long way to go for the industry, it is encouraging to see much more engagement with the sustainability conversation and the DPP Committed to Sustainability programme brings an important focus to this key issue.”
