As world leaders gather in Paris to try to hammer out a deal to tackle global warming, it’s a good opportunity for us all to look at what our industry is doing to reduce our carbon footprint.
The BAFTA albert Consortium is a group supporting the screen art industry’s transition to an environmentally sustainable future. Directors UK is an albert affiliated organisation helping spread the albert message to our members, challenging us all to achieve more and putting sustainable production into practice.
We are delivering FREE Carbon Literacy training to help individuals get to grips with sustainability and uncover what can be done. Successful completion of the course equips delegates with the knowledge and skills to reduce their personal carbon footprints and to create productions in a more sustainable way.
albert training helps you understand the environmental impact of production and gives you the knowledge to do something about it. This free and externally certified full-day course is designed for anyone working in production, from studio directors to production accountants.
This is an excellent chance to network, pick up skills that are increasingly requested by members of the albert consortium, and allows you to do your bit for saving the planet.
The training is being offered weekly from the beginning of January, with Directors UK hosting a session on Wednesday 30 March 2016 from 09.30am to 5.30pm.
Directors UK members can book any day, not just the one we’re hosting. Places are free but must be booked here.
Steve Smith, Directors UK Vice-Chair and Chair of the Entertainment and Multi-Camera Committee, has written about albert’s important work and his role as an albert ambassador.
