Join the industry to celebrate NAB Show’s Excellence in Sustainability Awards, presented by AWS. These awards recognize individuals, companies and products for outstanding innovations in media technology that promote conservation and reusability of natural resources and foster economic and social development. The awards ceremony will include a panel discussion on the importance of sustainability in media and the progress being made to integrate sustainability into media tech operations.

Our Commitment to Sustainability

The sustainability program at this year’s NAB Show also includes these initiatives:

  • Exhibitors presenting sustainable products at NAB Show are spotlighted in the MyNAB Show Planner and highlighted on the show floor with signage in their booth.
  • Floor tours will look at how sustainability informs the process of data and metadata management, how Web3 technologies can lower carbon emissions, and the video industry’s race to net zero carbon emissions.
  • The NABiQ innovation series invites participants to brainstorm and design the future of sustainable streaming and the reduction of carbon emissions among a growing server demand and a desire for seamless streaming experiences.
  • Many sessions will present industry case studies and proven solutions for employees, customers and communities seeking a more sustainable future in media and entertainment. A particular highlight will be the panel discussion on Main Stage titled Why Sustainability in Media Matters, held April 16, in conjunction with the Excellence in Sustainability Awards ceremony.
