Linking the power of celebrity to environmental awareness, EMA believes that through television, film and music, the entertainment community can affect change in a positive way. EMA’s work is widespread, from subtle messaging on the screen to promoting sustainable lifestyle choices and educating influential people on the power of “green,” our goal is inspiring the path to a healthier planet.
The annual EMA Awards is the only program singularly devoted to celebrating the entertainment industry’s creative environmental efforts. The EMA Awards honor productions, film and television personalities, corporations, musicians and musical tours that convey environmental messages in the most creative and influential ways.
Green Seal Guidelines and Awards
Whether in a production office or on-set, EMA’s Green Seal Guidelines offer realistic and simple tips for lessening your carbon footprint. The EMA Green Seal Awards acknowledge those productions and offices making environmentally conscious efforts through resource conservation, energy usage, recycling, set construction and more.
Celebrity Role Modeling
EMA advises celebrities and entertainment professionals on thought-provoking, attention-getting ways to role model healthy, sustainable lifestyles to the general public. Whether driving a hybrid or alternative fuel vehicle or carrying a canvas bag, EMA encourages celebrities to use their power to inspire environmentally responsible behavior and affect positive change.
With our green parenting resource page, we hope to provide you with tips and tools to help make healthier choices for you, your family, and the environment. The EMA Parent Board was formed with the mission to role model sustainable, practical and healthy lifestyle choices for families. Using celebrity and the media to educate and motive is the core of why we were founded.
