Mohawk Chosen To Help Primetime Emmy Awards Reduce Carbon Footprint

The 59th Primetime Emmy Awards will save the equivalent of 140 trees.

FOX and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences have gone "Green with Emmy" by partnering to produce an eco-friendly 59th Primetime Emmy Awards broadcast. This "Green with Emmy" campaign encompasses all Emmy events with the sole purpose of reducing the carbon footprint the Primetime Emmys have on the world's climate.

However, if you tune in at 8:00 pm EDT on September 16, you might not see all of sustainable initiatives that have already been implemented by the Television Academy.

For all the Creative Arts and Primetime Emmy Awards collateral items, such as invitations, tickets, posters programs, press materials and office paper, the Television Academy has used recycled paper manufactured with 100% windpower -- and almost entirely made from post-consumer waste -- with all items made carbon neutral.

By making these choices, the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards saved the equivalent of:

- 140 trees

- 60,000 gallons of wastewater

- 6,600 lbs of solid waste

- 13,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions

- Or, not driving 17,000 miles in a passenger car

FOX, the Television Academy and the telecast producers have set ambitious green goals, including the use of recyclable materials and recycling whenever possible; using hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles for transportation; and replacing production golf carts with bicycles.

The goals set also include reducing power requirements and utilizing alternative and eco-friendly energy sources -- including solar power -- for red carpet arrivals, production and Primetime Emmy events. Plus, the production aims to use locally grown and/or organic foods for press and event guests; and incorporate green themes into the televised broadcast.
