Climate change tops agenda at Cannes festival this year

New Delhi, Jul 13 (UNI) Amid Covid-19 concerns, climate change has emerged as one of the major topics of discussion at the ongoing Cannes film festival.
Three years after signing the 50:50 gender parity pledge to make it an inclusive festival, Cannes is addressing environmental concerns that have captured the attention of contemporary society during the coronavirus pandemic. At least two important initiatives taken by the festival this year directly deal with the climate crisis and global warming.
The first is the festival's decision to launch a series of measures to reduce the carbon footprint of the festival, which attracts tens of thousands of entertainment industry professionals from around the world. These include transforming more than half of the official fleet into electric and hybrid, total elimination of plastic bottles, 50 per cent reduction in paper printing, 50 per cent reduction in the red carpet, 95 per cent waste recovery, and linking participants' badges with public transport.
