The journey began as Bang was midway through filming its first series, and Roger went to a training session with the Carbon Literacy Project, which was part of a BFI funding requirement for a film project he was working on.
“Being able to get away from the hectic set for half a day and fully immerse myself in the ways a production could bring sustainability to their set was a lightbulb moment for me. Before, when the question of sustainability came up there was an attitude of ‘we’d like to do more but need more time and money to commit’. Post training, I realised there was so much that could be done immediately. ”
Roger began implementing these immediate changes as soon as he returned to set, starting with reducing paper use, reducing disposable cutlery use and having conversations with the catering department to offer a more sustainable menu and reuse any uneaten food.
