CARBON'CLAP IN ENGLISH
With Carbon'Clap you can measure the carbon footprint of an audiovisual, film or advertising project. By entering physical and financial data in the tool you can assess how much greenhouse gas emissions are emitted for the production of your project and identify the activities with the highest impact. A better understanding of the carbon footprint of a production can guide your choices and strategies for avoiding and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Discover how to set up your account, create a project and start measuring your projects footprint in the user guide.
On Wednesday the 6th of September at 4pm (Paris time) we will be offering a free online walkthrough of the Carbon'Clap to guide you through the tool and answer all the questions you might have!
The Ecoprod label lists actions for each departement, from script to post-production for all types of projects (fiction, documentary, shows,...) to guide them towards reducing the environmental impact of the production process. The labels enables you to:self-assess your production by measuring your sustainability scorecertify your production and be awarded the ECOPROD LABEL. To be eligible for the Ecoprod label the production has to meet all the mandatry requirements (blue critieria), reach a score of at least 65% and be audited by AFNOR Certification. The audit details are being finalized and will be published in September 2023.
THE FIRST GREEN GUIDE FOR ANIMATION
La Cartouch'Verte and Ecoprod presented the first green production guide for animation at the Annecy Film Festival!
This practical, operational tool is made up of 60 fact sheets listing 150 concrete actions to reduce the impact of the animation industry.
The tool is made available for free in French on our website. We are currently working on translating the guide into English, but since every country has specific issues, regulations and differently structured industries we are looking for international partners to create country-specific versions of the guide. Feel free to reach out to our team if you are interested in working on this topic!
GUIDE FOR SHOOTING IN NATURAL SPACES
The guide lists 10 potential direct risks: noise pollution, trampling, air pollution, odors generated by humans, light pollution, toxic pollution, diseases and invasive species, human-animal contact, overflights and over-frequentation. 10 comprehensive fact sheets address the causes, effects and alternatives (technical and organizational) of each of these risks. It also highlights best practices in relation to fundamental issues such as waste management, responsible purchasing, filming with animals, fire hazards, etc.
An English version will be launched on the coming months.
