Reel Green

The Reel Green initiative, a mainstay at Creative BC, looks ahead to the next decade to see how they can empower and inspire productions and industry stakeholders to innovate, implement sustainable production practices, and collectively support this effort.  Reel Green prioritizes education, engagement, communications, and resources as they develop a platform for the reduction of environmental impacts and stakeholder engagement at the local level to set an example for other jurisdictions globally.

green production guide

The Green Production Guide was developed by the Producers Guild of America Foundation and with primary support from Disney, Amblin Partners, 20th Century Fox, NBCUniversal, Paramount Pictures, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Warner Bros, with recent support from Amazon Studios and HBO.

The Green Production Guide features a searchable database of vendors with information about their green products, services, their production experience and what locations they serve. The site also offers a Production Environmental Accounting Report (PEAR) calculator that can be downloaded to help producers determine their production’s carbon footprint and the Production Environmental Actions Checklist (PEACH), which details best practices for sustainable film and television production.
