RESOURCES TO SUPPORT THE REDUCTION OF EMISSIONS FROM PRODUCTION

Carbon emissions relating to advertising production fall into 5 activity areas: transport, spaces (i.e. the energy we power our studios and officers with), materials, fuels and disposal. Generally speaking transport accounts for the largest part of a production footprint, and disposal the smallest. Below are some key things to think about when trying to make reductions in each area, and links to resources to help you put the theory into practice.

 

We need to get these carbon emissions as low as possible, and offset only unavoidable emissions. In September we'll be launching our carbon calculator - sign up to our newsletter for calculator updates direct to your inbox.
