PEOPLE + PLANET

We refuse to be a problem to the planet

Our aim is to give back to the planet and not take away from it. This means committing to zero waste, environmentally sustainable productions, and being a climate positive company by the end of 2021. This means we’ll remove more carbon from the world than we produce.

WHAT WE'RE COMMITTED TO

  • Reduce, reuse and recycle wherever possible
  • Paperless productions, offices and home working
  • No single use plastics in the workplace
  • Green energy providers for office spaces
  • Carbon footprint tracking and offsetting
  • Green travel including electric cars and public transport
  • No polystyrene or correxon on shoot
  • Rehoming leftovers by donating to partner charities
  • Recycle and compost waste
  • Renewable energy sources on productions
  • Plant based catering
  • Use of carbon calculators to measure carbon use and offset if necessary
  • Transparent reporting of carbon use and offsetting

Talent is everywhere, opportunity is not

Our vision is to improve the pathway into production for both those from lower socio-economic backgrounds and underrepresented groups. We know there’s more we can do and new stories to tell. Off screen inclusion will drive on screen representation.
