BBC Sustainability Strategy Includes Bioplastics

BBC's new sustainability strategy aims to take responsibility for its broadcasting and operations and help audiences understand the contribution they can make.

BBC’s targets have been set for 2022, and include

  • reducing carbon emissions by 24 %
  • reducing energy use by 10 %
  • reducing waste by 10 %
  • increasing recycling by 75 %

BBC has also switched its preferred glitter to a 100 % biodegradable liquid glitter for its popular dance contest show, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. The glitter is now 90 % single-use plastic free and the make-up wipes on its presenters, judges and contestants will be biodegradable.
