Studio Takes Early Action to Offer Cleaner Transport to the Entertainment Industry

Culver City, CA – November 28, 2012 – Sony Pictures Studios has upgraded its fleet of diesel, generator, and camera trucks to achieve compliance with California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations years ahead of schedule, offering its customers in the entertainment industry cleaner and more efficient transportation.

The Studio has invested in new clean diesel and gasoline trucks – a replacement of over one-third of its fleet – to reduce exhaust emissions and improve fuel economy. In addition to investing in new vehicles, the Studio has installed clean diesel filters on its fleet of generator and camera trucks that reduce local air pollutant emissions by more than 85%.

Paul Casella, Vice President, Logistics at Sony Pictures commented, “The studio is always looking at ways to offer cleaner, greener, and more cost-effective production options to our clients in the industry. These upgrades to our transportation fleet will help us continue to reduce exhaust emissions in everyday operations, which makes a significant difference to air quality in the region.”

In order to meet federally imposed clean air standards and to reduce the adverse health effects from truck pollution, CARB approved Truck and Bus regulation to significantly reduce particulate matter and emissions from existing diesel vehicles operating in California. The regulation has a final deadline of 2023.

Sony Pictures Studios also replaced its passenger vans as part of this upgrade, and now uses hybrid vehicles in its courier fleet, both of which will help to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases from the studios transportation fleet.
