Since 2017 all independent production companies have been required to complete and submit a carbon footprint assessment forms using the albert carbon calculator when delivering content to all the major broadcasters here in the UK. But many of the networks are now pushing harder and asking that all productions be Albert Certified, from 2021 onwards.
So if you’re planning a production it might be nice to know that Twoears Post is running on 100% renewable electricity and 100% carbon neutral gas. So you can tick that off your list!
Albert is administered by the BAFTA albert Consortium, an association of 13 of the UK’s largest production companies and broadcasters working to raise the profile of sustainability across the industry. More about Albert here.
