What is production carbon calculation?

Using data you already have at your finger tips, our bespoke calculator allows productions to quickly understand their environmental impact.

If you’re producing for BBC, ITV, Channel 4, UKTV, Sky or Netflix, you’ll need to calculate your carbon footprint with us.

Simply provide some basic information about your production office, studio, travel, accommodation locations, materials used disposal and post-production, and the rest is, well… maths.

What is sustainable production certification?

Certification is the easiest way to be introduced to sustainable production techniques and get rewarded for putting them into place.

Productions that successfully complete the certification will be awarded a 1, 2 or 3 star certificate and be given use of the albert Sustainable Production logo on their end board credits.

Our tools are free to use. To register, drop us an email with your company info, including the email addresses of both the production team member and the head of production who will complete and check submissions.

How to do it...

Follow these easy steps to measure your carbon footprint and put in place actions to reduce it.

Review your predicted carbon footprint and set the actions you will put in place to tackle it


Make the show and keep track of your data for your final footprint and the evidence you will need to gain certification
