When making purchasing decisions, Warner Bros. looks for products and services that utilize post-consumer materials, non-toxic content and earth-friendly practices.
ALTERNATIVE FUEL VEHICLES
Warner Bros. maintains a fleet of 23 courier vehicles, all of which are hybrids.
The Studio has a long history of using 100% post-consumer recycled, non-chlorine bleached paper for all stationery and business cards as well as 35% post-consumer recycled copy paper. Food Service and Custodial use only post-consumer recycled paper supplies. Beginning in 2007, Warner Home Video began using 30% post-consumer recycled, chlorine-free paper for all standard DVD and Blu-ray wraps and inserts; changes in DVD and Blu-ray packaging prevents the emission of approximately 43.4 million pounds of greenhouse gasses, or that of over 14,000 automobiles.
REVERSE OSMOSIS (RO) WATER FILTRATION
Warner Bros. encourages employees to choose reusable glasses or reusable water bottles in place of disposable water bottles. In 2009, Warner Bros. Studio Facilities successfully tested reverse osmosis water filtration systems at select locations, providing clean filtered water on site and on demand. RO water filtration systems are now being incorporated into all renovations and new construction projects. Ultimately, the systems will be installed in all plumbed locations that currently use five gallon water bottle stations to further reduce the need for remote sourcing of water, production of bottles and delivery-related emissions.
GREEN CLEANING PRODUCTS
The Warner Bros. Studio Facilities Custodial Staff has converted to non-toxic and green cleaning products wherever possible while also reducing the total number of products necessary to effectively clean and maintain equipment and facilities. The use of ammonia has been eradicated and the use of bleach has been reduced by approximately 90% while Greenseal or other green certified products comprise over 60% of acquired surface cleaners.
