In recent years, new environmental movements have been launched all over the world focusing on the burning issue of our times: climate change. In this session, in cooperation with organisations initiated from within the film industry, we’ll discuss how the AV sector can become more sustainable and contribute to a greener climate.
Founded in 2011, the British organisation albert supports the global film and TV industry in reducing the environmental impact of productions. The organisation offers a toolkit comprising an online calculator to measure a production’s carbon footprint, and an action plan to take measures to reduce it.
Some producers aren’t prepared to wait for policy on sustainability measures to be introduced from the top, and are taking the initiative themselves. In the Netherlands, producers Iris Otten and Laurette Schillings have founded the Film for Future foundation, and eco consultants such as Tobias Wilbrink are also being trained to assist productions in finding sustainable solutions.
