The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) announced Thursday that Shed Media, NBCUniversal International Television Production and UKTV will join the BAFTA Albert Consortium, an industry body for environmental sustainability within television production.
The three companies join existing members ITV, Sky, BBC, Channel 4, Kudos, IMG, Twofour, Endemol and all3media.
The Consortium has recently launched ‘albert+’ certification. It educates programme makers in sustainable production and highlights the green credentials of qualifying programmes by displaying the ‘albert+’ badge in their credits.
