However, in 2019, researchers named Emma a ‘super emitter’ of greenhouse gases.
Swedish academics analyzed the carbon footprints of ten famous people who travel the world.
The Beauty and the Beast star, the only Briton on the list, had the 10th worst environmental impact among the group of celebrities selected, based on their social media accounts.

Harry Potter star Emma Watson’s green mantra: From designing sustainable clothing to pledging to work only with green companies

Emma Watson has been advocating for environmental issues since 2009, when she was 19, when she collaborated with ethical English fashion label People Tree – which focuses on low-impact clothing.
The collaboration was to produce fair trade apparel – with Watson’s own interest in sustainable fashion.
The clothes, co-designed by the Harry Potter star, are handcrafted by disadvantaged groups in third world countries and can be traced directly back to their sources.
In 2011, she collaborated with famed Italian designer Alberta Ferretti on a “green” capsule collection known as Pure Yarns.
The collection consists of five pieces, including two dresses, a shirt, a long skirt, and a pair of denim shorts, which feature organic fabrics and come in eco-friendly packaging.
In 2017, she asked for Eco-Age’s help on the Beauty and the Beast international press tour.
The idea for the campaign, dubbed The Press Tour, was to showcase the best of environmentally and socially conscious fashion – from the red carpet to the magazine pages.
She used the campaign’s Instagram page to create videos and posts highlighting how all the dresses on the tour are made and from what materials.
Last year, she joined the board of directors of French multinational Kering as an advocate for sustainable fashion.
She also vowed to only wear sustainable clothes while on the red carpet.
The 31-year-old actress, who is also a leading voice for feminism, has stated that she is only happy to work with brands as long as they are environmentally conscious.
Just this month it was announced that Watson has invested in an environmental start-up with Biz Stone, co-founder of Twitter.
The couple aims to tackle the world’s plastic problem through the startup called FabricNano.
The London-based company is using cell-free biofabrication as a way to reduce the use of plastic and gasoline in products.
