Carbon Neutral Productions
We have a set goal of being carbon neutral by 2030 for all our productions, but this is only possible with the support and collaboration from our clients.
For all our productions, we offer to keep a strict eye on the carbon emission, and each production will be measured in accordance with the AdGreen or BAFTA Albert carbon calculators for us to give a full overview of the emission on each production.
With these tools, we can make suggestions on how to help decrease the CO2 emission thoughout the production. Furthermore, we work together with AdGreen and BAFTA certified Off-Set schemes, in order to compensate for the emission of each production, making it carbon neutral.
We are trained by both BAFTAalbert and AdGreen in Sustainable Production
We believe in green productions and in taking care of our planet. If it is at work or in pour private life, and this is a philosophy we like to encourage our staff to follow as well.
