Produce Movies, Not Pollution: Electriclimefilms Goes Green
Electriclimefilms recognises the need for an eco-conscious film industry. Since relocating their Singapore office to Duxton Hill they transitioned to a greener office. Continuing this initiative, they have adopted various zero-waste and carbon-neutral practices to create more sustainable film production sets. With this mentality they join a collective effort, helmed by innovators like AdGreen founder Jo Coombes, to raise awareness that waste reduction is an inherently important part of any business
As a production company that is involved in very hands-on creative processes, the inevitable is there will be unavoidable by-products that are wastefully discarded. In response to this industry-wide issue, Electriclimefilms has been putting their own processes under scrutiny. Their aim is to persistently make overall production and operation more sustainable by reducing waste and reliance on disposable plastics and other pollutants. As a result, these acts have reduced costs and contributed to efficiency throughout their business model. Challenging factors with making such a drastic and fundamental change have resulted from lack of sense of urgency and resources.
But Electriclimefilms has found ways to push through those obstacles. They were early adopters of using recyclable and compostable food & beverage packaging and paper products on set - preventing unnecessary plastic waste from food vendors and caterers. They have implemented reusable water bottles and carriers on set and in the office. These are just some examples of how Electriclimefilms is applying sustainable solutions to film production.
Looking forward, Electriclimefilms will engage with like-minded people in the green production movement as part of their sustainability commitment. Singapore has a growing community of eco-conscious activists and businesses working towards an environmentally sustainable culture and mindset. Electriclimefilms endeavours to set an example as a film production company in Singapore that understands these implications and can put into practice the effort to reduce their carbon footprint. Through community involvement they hope to contribute to a collective consciousness that strives to protect the environment and its beauty.
