Sustainability Policy

We are proud to stream our films through Vimeo, which uses Akamai for their content delivery.  Akami has an impressive sustainability policy and uses renewable energy wherever possible you can find more information here –


We don’t have any offices.  All our staff work from their own homes.  We use local crews and we keep international travel to an absolute minimum.  Below is our production sustainability policy.


Planning to include (as much as possible) net zero carbon considerations, such as:

• Ensure production is signed up for predicted carbon footprint and action plan

• Allow budget for carbon offsetting when reduction is not possible

• Consider opportunities to raise awareness of net zero carbon 

• Engage suppliers, asking for their sustainability metrics and standards and any new best practices they can bring to production

• Check green-rider opt-in with all cast and crew

• Plan for low-emission travel and transport, materials, supplies, energy, catering and accommodation

• Provide sustainable production training for all relevant people; engage everyone and hold them accountable

• Make construction ‘benign by design’ – easy to deconstruct for reuse or recycling

• Editorial teams to do virtual recon where possible


• No single use plastics on set

• Use renewable energy where possible

• Use green fuel and/or electric vehicles for travel

• Minimize air travel and avoid domestic flights

• Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle

• Apply the Circular Economy model and aim for net-zero waste to landfill

• Use Sustainable low-carbon catering, locally sourced

• Employ local crew and choose accommodation close to set

• Ensure Green Memo is sent to all Crew

• Opt-in required for any printing (incl. call-sheets, scripts)

• Consider opportunities to raise awareness of net-zero carbon 


• Review and store all reusable materials, scenery, props and costumes

• Re-purpose or donate when possible

• Recycle remaining materials

• Use preferred post-production facilities, that are powered by green-tariffs

• Remote post-production when possible

• Complete carbon calculator and certification

• Offset any unavoidable emissions

• Debrief with production and editorial teams

Key Sustainability Standards:

Below are our key sustainability standards that we recommend adding to the green memo for all stakeholder engagement:  

• Training & Awareness: Getting our facts straight

• Sustainable production training for everyone at the beginning of each production

• Distribution of Green Memo

• Travel & Transport: Low or No-Emissions

• Utilize public transport where possible. Think car-share or carpool where not possible and it is COVID-safe to do so

• Reduce international flights where possible

• Use video conferencing rather than travelling to place-based meetings

• Hire electric rental cars as much as possible and where available

• Insist on ‘no idling’ for all vehicles on production

• Use green taxis and couriers

• Use bicycle couriers for shorter deliveries

• Use LED lighting on and off set where possible

• Use rechargeable batteries

• Switch off vehicles, lights and appliances when not in use and no devices on charge overnight

• Reuse Repurpose Recycle: Keep it in use

• Source second hand, pass on assets you no longer need

• Pledge to reduce personal waste (e.g., food packaging waste, coffee cups, etc) and waste generated in your role within the production … and out of landfill: Waste Management

• Cut departmental waste, avoid single use plastics and look for packaging free options

• Use the clearly signed recycling & compost bins in all work areas including set and unit bases

• Catering, Coffee & Water: Consume consciously

• Pre-order all catering, coffee and water in line with production set up

• Avoid single use plastics: bring your own reusable water bottles, coffee cups, food containers and cutlery and encourage everyone to do the same

• Any leftover food to be donated locally

• Ensure food waste is placed in the dedicated composting bin

• Sustainable Materials: Avoiding hidden habitat destruction

• New materials have a high carbon footprint. Reduce our impact by using existing materials, recycled content and renewable sources where not possible to reuse or repurpose

• Go paperless where possible, an ‘opt in’ policy for printing is in operation and always print double sided

• Source from local suppliers rather than shipping from far afield
