Screen Actors Guild Awards Honored with the Environmental Media Association’s Green Seal Award for the Seventh Consecutive Year
LOS ANGELES (October 26, 2015) – In recognition of its creative environmental efforts, the Screen Actors Guild Awards® has been honored for the seventh consecutive year with the Environmental Media Association (EMA)’s Green Seal. Presented at the 25th Annual EMA Awards on Saturday, Oct. 23, 2015 at Warner Brothers Studio, the accolade recognizes the outstanding green initiatives of the 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards®. The SAG Awards® is the only special event to have received the Green Seal for seven consecutive years.
The EMA Green Seal Program was created to promote responsible production methods and provide recognition for industry professionals that have made strides by embracing such practices. The Program's criteria provide a practical and comprehensive guide to eco-friendly film, television, award show and gala production. The Program is based on a self-assessment by the production company on how well it complies with the Program criteria developed by EMA and Green Seal.
SAG Awards executives recognized by EMA for spearheading the production’s environmental efforts were Executive Producer Kathy Connell, Supervising Producer Jon Brockett, Coordinating Producer Cynthia Kistler, Production Manager Chris Carr and Executive in Charge of Publicity Rosalind Jarrett Sepulveda.
In 2013, the SAG Awards® received EMA's Green Production Award. This honor provided recognition for the SAG Awards® amongst its peers for its environmentally progressive operations and ability to surpass its green efforts year after year.
The SAG Awards production team is committed to continuing its environmental practices for the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016.
