Sustainable Film

Sustainable film is a sub-theme of sustainable development.

Sustainability management for film allows organizations in the film industry (production, distribution, exhibition, sales and archiving) to manage their environmental, social and financial risks and impacts



A film industry organization implementing a sustainability management system will take stock of their environmental impacts such as greenhouse gases, waste and their effect on biodiversity, social impacts such as their role in the community and career development, and economic impacts such as local investment and their own financial viability. Sustainable management systems help such organizations increase efficiencies and realize cost reductions.
