Green Screen is a practical online tool that supports environmentally friendly filming in London.

The platform enables productions shooting in the capital to set their own environmental targets, and provides them with an action plan to help them achieve their goals.

Productions that have already achieved a Green Screen stamp through a pilot programme include The Crown (Netflix), Free Fire (Rook Films) and City of Tiny Lights (BBC Films).

“The Green Screen initiative really helped us keep sustainability at the top of the agenda on a daily basis – something we were happy to do but also something that's very easy to let slide on a production.”

Ben Wheatley, director Free Fire

What do you get?

Productions that register for Green Screen will receive access to resource guides, a bespoke crew memo, and simple tailored tips for each production department.

After achieving their goals, they are awarded with the official Green Screen stamp, which they can use on their endroll and promotional materials to demonstrate their green credentials to the world. 

Every Green Screen production is helping to make London's screen industries more sustainable, and cutting their own costs through reduced waste and energy consumption.
