Film London has commenced the second phase of its project looking at support for sustainability in the film and TV industry.
The organisation is again working with sustainable business consultants Creative Zero on a survey to compile data on total emissions created from vehicle and mobile power use.
The Fuel Project aims to provide practical information, steps and support to film and TV production suppliers as they make the move toward new, low-carbon technologies, helping drive down emissions in the industry.
Phase I assessed the use of low-carbon energy alternatives, proposing solutions to reduce the level of carbon emissions and air pollutants emitted by vehicle transport and mobile power units (generators) in production.
Phase II will offer industry suppliers vital next steps as they transition to decarbonised vehicle and mobile power technologies, including suggested end dates for certain high carbon technologies, said Film London.

Film London is seeking information from across the industry, including broadcasters, streamers, major studios, production companies, producers and sustainability professionals.
The deadline for completion is 20th November 2023, with analysis and a final report delivered in 2024.
Speaking about the project, Daniela Kirchner, chief operating officer of Film London said: ‘’The film and TV industry must continue to work closely together to confront the challenges of climate breakdown. Industry-wide collaboration is key if we are to reduce production emissions more efficiently.”
