Environmental Media Association

May 31st, 2018 by


One of the most effective ways to promote environmentalism in mainstream culture is to popularize it through the entertainment industry. You’ll also learn a little more about the Los Angeles nonprofit scene and how you can get involved today to make the greater LA area — from North Hollywood to Glendale — a more vibrant, healthy, and safe community for our proud residents.

Environmental Media Association Mission

The Environmental Media Association seeks to create a more sustainable future by working at the intersection of the entertainment industry, entrepreneurship, and powerful marketing programs to energize people everywhere to live a more sustainable lifestyle and to protect the future of this planet. The organization accomplishes this very important goal through a variety of programs, including:

  • EMA IMPACT: This program works with entrepreneurs and the Fortune 500 to craft sustainable economic growth and high-impact startups.
  • EMA Messaging: This division of EMA works with social media and advertising campaigns to spread awareness about the most important green solutions that society should know about.
  • EMA Green Seal: The EMA Green Seal program works with studios and production firms to help reduce the carbon footprint of major projects.
  • #GreenMySchool: This program educates children about sustainable eating and agriculture.

Environmental Media Awards

The EMAs serve as the “Green Standard” for the entertainment industry by honoring those individuals who have helped to increase the awareness of important environmental issues.
