The Carbon Calculator launched for use on Irish productions
16 Dec 2019 : News Desk
Screen Greening Coalition
Screen Ireland has announced that the Carbon Calculator is now available for use on Irish productions.

The calculator was launched at Screen Skills Ireland’s Responsible Production event in October, as part of the Screen Greening Coalition’s efforts, which is formed by the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), RTÉ, Screen Ireland, Screen Producers Ireland, TG4 and Virgin Media Television.

The carbon calculator allows producers to understand a productions' environmental impact. By providing some basic information about studio, work, travel, accommodation, locations, materials use and disposal, and post-production; the calculator reveals the extent of the carbon emissions on any given production. 

Knowing this information will then allow the producers to offset these emissions by implementing sustainable film making practices throughout their production. These could include eliminating single use plastic, using water foundations, smart waste management solutions and reducing travel between locations. 

Access the Irish Carbon Calculator

  • Email inwardproduction@screenireland.ie
  • Provide the production company name and where the production will take place
  • Producers will receive a link with access information

Given the effects of climate change, the need to introduce more environmentally sustainable filmmaking practices in the screen industries is clear. Recent reforms of the Film and Tax Credit Section 481 now also include a requirement, recently introduced by the Department of Culture and Screen Ireland, to develop funding criteria for productions based on the following six guiding principles: Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, Career & Skills development, Dignity in the Workplace, and Climate and Sustainability.
