Each year, the Environmental Media Awards honor film and television productions that convey environmental messages in creative ways, and at this year's awards ceremony, FOX Broadcasting Company will receive the special EMA Green Production Award. The award recognizes FOX for its efforts to raise awareness and funds for environmental causes through the FOX Fall Eco-Casino Party.

FOX has been celebrating the premiere of its fall television season with the Eco-Casino Party for the past ten years, and in that time, the event has raised more than $250,000 for environmental charities. FOX also works to make each event carbon neutral, including using LED lights, recycling all paper, cans, bottles, and cardboard, composting food and beverage waste, serving sustainable foods, renting event furniture and equipment, and measuring the carbon footprint to offset all remaining CO2 emissions.

In addition, FOX continually works with its partners to encourage them to implement green initiatives. For example, Sweetwater Video Productions, FOX's main supplier of audio/visual equipment, has changed its entire fleet of trucks to run off more eco-friendly B20 bio-diesel, and it powers its facility with solar power. These types of efforts affect industry-wide events.

"We are incredibly proud of our friends at FOX Broadcasting Company for the work they have done with the FOX Fall Eco-Casino Party," said EMA President Debbie Levin. "When millions of fans around the U.S. are excited and focused on the new fall season and their new favorite shows, FOX captures this attention to showcase essential environmental messages with a beautiful and high-end sustainable event. It represents the best in what EMA strives to do each day and we're excited to honor the network this year."

FOX's content also received two nominations at this year's awards: Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey in the Reality Television category and New Girl in the Television Comedy category. In addition, 21st Century Fox businesses Fox Film and Twentieth Century Fox Television received nominations for Rio 2 and Modern Family.

The EMA Awards, presented by Toyota and Lexis, will take place on October 18th at Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, California. The Environmental Media Association, founded in 1989 by Cindy and Alan Horn and Lyn and Norman Lear, is dedicated to harnessing the power of celebrity and the media to promote sustainable lifestyles and believes, through positive role modeling, the entertainment community can inspire consumers to take action.
