Day 2 Pre KIGF Online Discussion – Environment Track

Thank you for this opportunity. I work in the film industry so I will
answer from that perspective. Regarding question 1 and 2:

One of the many tools provided by greenfilmmaking.com is Carbon
Calculators. They list a number, including an app from Germany called the
Carbon Film Quote. The Green Production Guide of the Producers Guild of
America has the Carbon Calculator which can be downloaded for free, for
both PC and Mac. Greenfilmmaking.com also made sustainable additions to
their Covid-19 toolkit, available on their website. They have a list of
green filmmaking research done from several countries: “Sam Mendes’ “Away
we go” (2009) greened up the whole production and wrote a good report about
it, which sparked green filmmaking initiatives around the globe.” The
report is available for download from greenfilmmaking.com .

Regards,
Mildred Achoch.
