Working sustainably in any industry can feel like a challenge. This is particularly the case in the film industry, where location shooting and intensive use of costumes, sets and large casts raise a wide range of environmental issues. How can a film production company demonstrate a commitment to the long-term health of Planet Earth whilst also producing high quality content? How can businesses who make use of media to explain and promote their services and products do so in a sustainable way?
We are passionate about helping organisations to identify and achieve their sustainability goals in relation to film and media production.
Our philosophy at Eco Film Productions is that it does not matter where you start with sustainability. What matters is that you take that first step. Making a commitment to incremental changes to your company’s practices and approaches can be a manageable way of achieving significant change in the long-run.
So what does working sustainably mean? EFP favours the most widely adopted definition of sustainable development, that of the UN World Commission on Environment and Development:
This presents a framework for the advancement of human development in a context which does not compromise the integrity of natural eco-systems. In other words, it balances the ‘three pillars of sustainability’, namely environmental, social and economic development.
