Warner Bros. invests in fleet vehicles equipped with fuel-efficient hybrid technologies, the latest emission reducing technologies such as diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and NOx reducing exhaust systems and uses biodiesel as an alternative source of fuel. Stake bed trucks are also equipped with recycled plastic lumber as an alternative to wood siding.
Valentine’s Day and Horrible Bosses were the first two feature films to use biodiesel (B20, a 20% biodiesel blend) for production at Warner Bros. Two 1,000 gallon tanks were installed at the Warner Bros. back lot in Burbank, California to accommodate these alternative fueling efforts and currently offers fuel to both our feature and television productions.
The Studio houses several electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in support of Studio employees and guests who drive electric vehicles. These charging stations can fully charge most vehicles in about four hours.
There are also numerous 110v outlets located throughout the lot to charge the Studio’s golf cart fleet. All passenger and utility golf carts on the lot are electric – and several are even solar electric.
