Sustainability in Media Production

From no-budget student productions to full-scale Hollywood movies, media production has often been a wasteful industry.  This is not the way things have to be.  Here are some resources to help make media production more environmentally-friendly:

The Center for Social Media published the Code of Best Practices for Sustainable Filmmaking.

The Producers Guild of America has a website,, dedicated to connecting filmmakers with sustainability resources and has published the PGA Green Unified Best Practices Guide.

The Environmental Media Association has a best practices guide for their Green Seal award.

Locally, check out the Philadelphia Film Office Greener Sets initiative and the SETS Resource Guide.
