During our work we focus on these six key areas in providing sustainable solutions and support services for film and television productions while minimising their environmental impact:

Location scouting

Finding filming locations that are environmentally sensitive and ensuring minimal disruption to ecosystems.

Carbon Offsetting

Calculating the carbon footprint of the production project and offsetting it through investments in renewable energy or conservation projects in areas where the shoot will take place. We currently have a framework for film and TV productions to pay very small donations to community forest projects and other green space initiatives when filming in a particular area.

Energy Efficiency

Advising on the use of energy-efficient lighting, equipment, and transportation options to reduce carbon emissions.

Travel

A priority area for reducing emissions, Eco Film Fixers encourages the use of low-emission vehicles and carpooling among cast and crew to reduce the carbon footprint of transportation.

Employee Engagement

Eco Film Fixers work with various Green Teams, to oversee the ongoing sustainability initiatives in the business and wider filming communities with an emphasis on entrepreneurialism. By working with Eco Film Fixers, productions can not only reduce their environmental impact but also potentially save money through efficiency measures and by tapping into available incentives for sustainable filmmaking.
