Be super!

On average, travel contributes 30% to the environmental footprint of a production. Luckily there is a lot we can do about that. Be a super hero, ask your cast and crew to share cars, don’t fly in the UK, hire efficient production vehicles and consider how editorially, on-screen transport choices can influence viewers.

Use it up

Even an efficient long run production can gobble up 2 million sheets of paper a year. End-to-end that would stretch for 600 km. Scripts, movement orders, call sheets or menus: When you need to print, do so on both sides of the paper.

BYOB

If you have a cast and crew of over 200 working on location, chances are you’ll dispose of well over 200 bottles per day, but is doesn’t have to be that way. Why not provide reusable water bottles, or better still, ask people to bring their own.
Be your own person, BYOB.
