It is of the upmost importance to us that environmental sustainability is embedded in the way S4C programmes are made. We have a duty to ensure that we are keeping our environmental impact to a minimum and we aim to do everything we can to help and encourage the producers we work with to put the environment at the forefront of their programme making.
As of September 2021, S4C will begin its partnership with the BAFTA albert consortium, an association of some of the UK's largest production companies and broadcasters to achieve this, and embed sustainability into our production process
September's "soft launch" will allow companies to become familiar with the requirements before becoming mandatory as of January 1st 2022 (unless they are a series under 15 minutes in total duration and/or under £50k in total budget).
There is more information on S4C production website under Albert -https://www.s4c.cymru/en/production/page/1154/guidelines/

Following a recent callout S4C are still looking for ideas for long form entertainment and documentary series for HANSH. (6x30 for VOD and 9:00/9:30pm linear slot)
As S4C and its audience changes, we want to ensure that our younger audiences have access to longer content on VOD and linear television.
Our vision is to create long form content that defines the HANSH brand in 2021/22 and which changes people's perception of S4C.
We want more high quality content which challenges the way we think about ourselves as Welsh people.
