To mark New York Climate Week, His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales has launched RE:TV – a new channel on Prime Video.
RE:TV showcases great examples from global business of how to tackle climate change. The team has identified businesses that specialise in the most innovative approaches to reusing and recycling.
Spotlight on innovations
Covering a huge range of innovation – from recycling coffee, reseeding rainforests and refining solar to revitalising cities and remodelling fashion – the films focus on positive, forward-thinking stories that show how human ingenuity and innovation can power the transition our planet so greatly needs.
The RE:TV content on Prime Video also includes a direct plea from Prince Charles that we must act now. He says there is hope, but we are running out of time.
RE:TV highlights projects around the world that are working on brilliant initiatives to help transform how business is done, and create a cleaner, more sustainable economy.
For each film, RE:TV worked with local crews and international partners to champion inspiring solutions from around the world and highlight the work of projects in Asia, Africa, North America and Europe.
‘Remapping Restoration’ profiles Restor, a data platform based in the UK which is working to reinvent restoration efforts around the world through AI and machine learning – its founder has recently been listed as an Earthshot Prize finalist.
‘Recycling Everything’ highlights the innovative company TerraCycle, based in New Jersey, which has become a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle materials.
‘Refuelling Aviation’ explores the journey towards affordable and clean energy with Chicago-based start-up Lanzatech, which has developed a biological process to create Sustainable Aviation Fuel.
Engaging with the climate crisis
The work reflected in these films is the embodiment of Prince Charles’ more than four-decade vision to address society’s most pressing concerns, including a rapid transition to net-zero carbon emissions.
‘I’ve spent a lot my lifetime trying to engage people and businesses with the issues and solutions of the climate crisis. RE:TV was therefore set up with the aim of capturing the will and imagination of humanity and champion the most inspiring solutions for sustainability from around the world. I hope that with this partnership with Prime Video we can bring these inspiring innovations and ideas to a wider audience and demonstrate together what is possible in the pursuit of a sustainable future.’
