EMA Green and Gold Seals were awarded to 59 NBCUniversal television and feature film productions – the most awarded to NBCUniversal to date, up from 46 in 2021. The EMA Green Seal program recognizes progress in sustainable production practices, including fuel reduction, reuse and recycling, sustainable building materials, LED lighting, food donations and more.

In addition to sustainable production accolades, NBCUniversal took home the award for reality television with The End Is Nye: The Volcano Paradox from Universal Television Alternative Studio and UCP, divisions of Universal Studio Group, and Fuzzy Door.
