A new standard for sustainability in Film

As the lead body for film in the UK the BFI embraces best practice and takes seriously its responsibility to co-ordinate a UK-wide sustainability strategy for all parts of the film sector in the UK. This includes adopting BS 8909, the new British Standard for sustainability that was announced in 2011, and actively encourage other film organisations to do the same. A coordinated approach to sustainability using BS 8909 will help us all meet UK carbon budgets and will lead to greater efficiencies and long-term cost savings so that budgets can be used to better support the film industry.
