A committed Festival

An environmental commitment in Full HD

The Monte-Carlo Television Festival is environmentally conscious and acutely aware of the new ecological challenges facing the planet. That’s why it has decided to make an active commitment designed to promote sustainable development through a series of concrete actions.

The initiative is a tribute to the event’s creator, Prince Rainier III, who in 1966 declared that one of television’s roles was to highlight damage to the oceans and certain species of wildlife.

For many years, the Festival has worked to raise television viewers’ awareness about environmental issues, through a special prize created at the behest of the Sovereign Prince, awarded to the documentary that deals with this issue most effectively.

This latest commitment will bring together the organising team, service providers, partners, guests and everyone involved with the Festival, as part of a collective effort based around a range of innovative action.

This initiative is naturally inspired by the sterling work done over many years by the Festival’s Honorary President, H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, who is known around the world as one of the leading defenders of the environmental cause.

The organisation Monaco Mediax, in charge of the Festival, joined the Principality's National Energy Transition Pact on November 14, 2019, thus committing itself alongside the Principality to reduce its environmental impact.
