The second iteration of Sustainability Behind the Lens will take place on 6 June at Sky Studios Elstree.  

Hosted by The Production Guild of Great Britain (PGGB) in association with Sky Studios Elstree and supported by The Generator Project, the full-day event is for industry professionals across the board (even if non-members of the PGGB) to meet and network with green technology suppliers.

PGGB’s Sustainability Committee is headed up by Amelia Price, who said: “This event was established to give crew on the ground the opportunity to come and learn about new technology first hand.  If we want our team members to adopt new ways of working, we need to support them, and our suppliers by connecting everyone together so that we can really learn from each other with practical solutions.”

Sky Studios Elstree recently won albert’s highest rating of ‘outstanding’ in its Studio Sustainability report. It is powered by 100% renewable energy, a majority of which comes from the 3-acres of solar panels across the rooftops, with rainwater harvesting, LED lighting, EV charging points and an all-electric operations vehicle fleet.

Noel Tovey, managing director, Sky Studios Elstree added: “Sustainability has always been at the heart of everything we do at Sky Studios Elstree. It’s great to be recognised by BAFTA albert as the world’s most sustainable film and TV studio following our first full year of operation. We’re excited to continue to partner with major film and TV productions to give them a world-class facility, all while reducing our impact on the environment.”
