Producers Guild Launches New Green Production Guide for 2017

The environmental sustainability guide was made from data taken from Hollywood’s Big Six studios

The Producers Guild of America unveiled their 2017 edition of the Green Production Guide on Wednesday. The guide serves as a resource for producers and filmmakers looking to reduce their environmental impact on set.

It was built using research from sustainable projects from Hollywood’s Big Six studios, namely 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Paramount Pictures, Columbia Pictures, Universal Pictures and Walt Disney Pictures.

Featured projects include “The Fate of the Furious,” “Fifty Shades Darker,””Jason Bourne,” “War for the Planet of the Apes,” “Daddy’s Home,” “Legion,” “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” “The Blacklist,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Black-ish,” “Quantico,” and “Pretty Little Liars.”

“The most effective way to advance sustainable production is to align best practices, so the PGA collaborated closely with our studio partnersin creating this resource,” Mari-Jo Winkler, Chair of PGA Green, said in a statement. Together, we are proud to share our combined tools and knowledge viaour public Green Production Guide website, which any production may access for free.”

The guide includes a database of over 2,000 eco-friendly production vendors, a carbon calculator to help producers keep track of a production’s environmental footprint, and a guide that helps each department set goals for sustainability.
