This series of Dragons’ Den goes green, with cast and crew going the extra mile to drive carbon emissions down.
Multi-millionaire investors Deborah Meaden, Piers Linney, Duncan Bannatyne, Kelly Hoppen and Peter Jones ditched their cars while
travelling to and from the show, opting to share with fellow Dragons or take public transport.
The combined efforts of both cast and crew fuelled a cut in the BBC Two programme’s travel footprint, saving over 1,000kg of CO₂ emissions while the series was in production.
Long standing investor Deborah Meaden, said: “Sharing a car with the other Dragons every night is the best kind of being green, saving carbon and being sociable.
“Everyone on Dragons’ Den does their bit for the environment, in fact I’m proud to say we produced the show one week entirely with solar power. Waste is just bad business sense and cutting it does not cut quality.”
