About

The Greening the Screen sustainability toolkit is full of ideas and examples intended to encourage the screen production industry to use its creativity to seek win-win solutions that deliver both screen success and protection of New Zealand’s natural, historical and cultural heritage. Recognising the constraints faced by the industry, the toolkit is designed to help the screen production industry to think smarter, work better and add value. It contains practical improvement measures that can be implemented on any production regardless of size. The toolkit encourages all users to focus on what matters most to their business. The very nature of screen production in New Zealand, where groups of professionals come together for a few months and then disperse to other projects, provides a great opportunity for Greening the Screen practices to spread throughout the industry.
