What is the Carbon Calculator?
Derived from one of the motion picture industry’s leading carbon calculators, albert, Reel Green™ has adapted a carbon calculator for British Columbia, for free, for productions in B.C. to use.
Calculating the carbon footprint of your production is an important step in understanding the impact of film production. Having consistent data and metrics from the industry can help organizations like Reel Green understand priority areas for sustainable practices as well as help productions understand and measure their carbon impact.
Additionally, with more available data points we can also derive economic benefits of going green on production!
Watch a video overview of how the calculator works.
