On the latest episode of the GreenBiz 350 podcast, GreenBiz executive editor Joel Makower interviewed 21st Century Fox’s VP of Social Impact Vijay Sudan about the company’s efforts to green its film and television productions. Vijay spoke about the studio’s recent production achievements, such as 24: Live Another Day’s success at becoming the first TV series to use 100% FSC-certified lumber for set construction, as well as the company’s ongoing efforts to manage waste.

“There’s a baseline of behind-the-scenes work that has continued for decades,” he said. “As we move forward from looking at our energy and carbon issues, we’re really looking at what goes into a production and what the environmental impacts are... we’re looking at waste issues and how we responsibly dispose of those materials and reuse them.”

Listen to Vijay’s full interview, which includes looks at how The X-Files event series was able to recycle “dirty” Styrofoam, the wardrobe department’s reuse policy, and House’s donation of the doors from its hospital sets to Habitat for Humanity.
