Film London has partnered with sustainable business consultants Creative Zero to publish a new report that provides practical information, steps and support to film and TV industry in its move towards sustainability.
The report, titled The Fuel Project, has been funded by Interreg Europe’s Green Screen.
It offers film and TV production suppliers help as they make the move toward new, low-carbon technologies.
The industry’s current contribution to greenhouse gases and air pollution is dominated by fuel consumption: 50 per cent of a production’s carbon footprint, as well as air pollution, comes from fuel use across land transport and mobile power services, states the report.
To help counteract that, the report proposes solutions and technologies that production supply companies can employ to bring down the industry’s collective emissions.
The Fuel Project recommends that production suppliers and industry leaders continue to collaborate to find bespoke solutions to environmental challenges, and continue the dialogue around reducing emissions in film and TV production.
Daniela Kirchner, COO of Film London and the British Film Commission and lead partner of Green Screen, said: ‘’The global growth in film and TV production, while exciting, will have significant impacts on our climate unless meaningful action is taken to reduce emissions. I hope production suppliers can benefit from the report and that industry leaders and partners alike can continue to collaborate to address environmental challenges.”
