Humans are responsible for climate change.
People drive cars, heat and cool their houses, cook food, etc. All those things take energy.
We get energy by burning coal, oil, and gas, which puts greenhouse gases into the air. The gases cause the air to heat up. That changes the earth's climate.
Burning fossil fuels has jump-started global warming.
Suppose we do not maintain a below 1.5 degrees temperature rise. In that case, we will see an irreversible shift to extreme temperatures and weather, which will incur a domino effect of survival-threatening phenomena.
To keep the average temperature rise below 1.5 degrees, we must drastically reduce the number of greenhouse gases we pump into the air and scale up nature-based solutions like afforestation and regenerative land practices to sequester massive amounts of CO2 quickly.
What is environmentally sustainable production?
Film and TV productions utilize a lot of energy and material, producing a substantial carbon footprint. This can be prevented by being aware of how to curtail the negative environmental impact of our industry. Thus, contributing to the fight to save the earth's climate.
Sustainable production aims for a gradual reduction in carbon emissions and waste. The core objective is to share sustainability values with everyone involved in the production, ranging from cast, crew, suppliers, management, investors, and the audience.
The desired outcome is an environmentally conscious industry and a well-informed audience; that is, without mentioning how going green can save a lot of money from the production's budget and how it can help you apply to several existing international green funds and awards!
We would like you to join the fight as we strongly believe in the power of knowledge and collective action, rather than individual and consumer blaming. That's why we offer you this guide; a step-by-step system of deep green solutions that you can integrate into your next production.
Learn how to use this guide
As you go through, the skeleton of this guide will help you follow the standard timeline of production from pre-production to post-production; even to your festivals and screenings run!
You can choose to skip sections and go directly to your desired one using the table of contents on the left.
Here and there, you will encounter Know-More in-texts and EcoTip pop-ups offering you some additional insightful information; you can click through them as you please.
We believe in offering you all the tools needed to succeed in your green production; therefore, we listed all the green products, services, and key players in the Find Your Green Alternative section to help you locate where you can buy/find them.
What a powerful tool it is to learn from one another! Because we love the collective, we have dedicated a section for Case Studies where you can go over the experience of productions that have used this guide. We hope you try it next and send us your very own case study to add!
