CBS hosted over 500 attendees at this years Eye on the Environment Expo to network and discuss the most exciting green products, technologies, and initiatives in the entertainment industry. This year, 48 companies showcased their sustainable products and services in the areas of office, production, facilities, and community involvement.
The highlight of the event this year was “Lights, Camera, Sustainable Action”, a panel discussion on incorporating environmental practices into the operations of television productions. The panel was moderated by CNET Senior Editor Ashley Esqueda and included executives from Hollywood Trucks, Entertainment Partners, and Earth Angel. Special guest Lori McCreary, Executive Producer of MADAM SECRETARY and President of the Producers Guild of America, described her journey to becoming a green producer.
The Environmental Media Association recognized these achievements by awarding MADAM SECRETARY the rigorous EMA Green Seal certification.
New to the event was the CBS Sustainability Experience in which guests participated in experiential activities as part of the new 1, 2, 3, GREEN campaign.
