[via press release from FOX]

FOX GOES GREEN FOR RED CARPET ARRIVALS OF THE "63RD PRIMETIME EMMY(R) AWARDS"

FOX, in partnership with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, will bring clean energy to the 63RD PRIMETIME EMMY(R) AWARDS airing live Sunday, Sept. 18 (8:00-11:00 PM ET live/5:00-8:00 PM PT live) on FOX. Solar panels will provide power to the Primetime Emmys red carpet and, for the first time ever, FOX will donate the solar panels and the red carpet to local charities after the event. In addition, the 390-foot red carpet is the largest ever to be lit entirely by low-energy LED and fluorescent lighting.

This year's red carpet is made from 25,000 square feet of locally-sourced recycled carpet, produced in the only LEED-certified carpet facility in the world. Made from 50% recycled content, the carpet will be donated after the awards to the Ronald McDonald House Long Beach and to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles.

FOX has also partnered with Kinetic Lighting to provide Prism Projection RevEAL Studio LED lighting fixtures throughout the red carpet area. The low-energy LED and fluorescent lighting will vastly reduce power consumption, using only approximately 20% of the power traditionally used for red carpet arrivals.

In addition, the red carpet will be powered by over 200 locally-manufactured solar panels. In the five days leading up to the broadcast, the solar panels, provided by SolarWorld, will produce approximately 925-kWh of energy-enough to power a typical family home for approximately two months. The solar panel system will be tied into the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power utility grid and will greatly reduce FOX's power consumption.

After the event and with the support of SolarWorld, the solar panel system will be donated to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Los Angeles, which will install the panels in sustainably built homes throughout the Los Angeles area. Once permanently installed, the system is expected to mitigate an average of approximately 90,000 pounds (or 45 tons) of CO2 each year (in addition to approximately 480 pounds of SO2 and 340 pounds of NOx), and will generate renewable energy for at least the next 25 years.

FOX's goal for all special events is to have zero waste. -Therefore, all food waste and biodegradable disposables will be composted. In addition, all recyclable materials used during the event will be collected and sorted.

Additional highlights of FOX's greening efforts at the Primetime Emmy Awards include:

· All signage will be printed with water-based inks either on recycled aluminum by AoSA or on eco-friendly and biodegradable materials.

· The media press tent and red carpet are entirely incandescent-free. The tent will be illuminated by compact fluorescent and LED lamps. The red carpet will be lit by fluorescent and LED lighting, reducing the power need by approximately 80%.

· The 25,000 square feet of arrivals red carpet is made of 50% recycled content - including 40% pre-consumer and 10% derived from post-consumer carpet. Additionally, the carpet is being produced locally by Bentley Prince Street whose factory is a mere 16 miles away.

· In lieu of golf carts traditionally used by staff and crew at such events, bicycles from a previous event will be used on site.

· Supplemental power will be provided by bio-diesel generators using UPS batteries. The batteries will signal the generator to turn on in the event of a power failure reducing the need to have generators running simultaneously.

· A full recycling program is in place throughout the main show, media center and red carpet area to collect waste from batteries, paper, bottles, plastic and food.

· Locally grown and/or organic foods will be provided by Chef Alan Jackson of Lemonade and served to production staff, press and event guests.

· Events teams will use reusable serviceware including glasses, plates, silverware, serving platters and trays. Tables and chairs are rented and reusable.

· All linens used in the media areas are rented and will be cleaned with environmentally-friendly laundry detergents.

· All plants in the arrivals area and media areas are rented and therefore are considered reusable living plants (no cut plants).
