Carbon Aware Productions

Carbon Aware Productions offer green consultancy services and a green database to help pull together environmentally friendly services on offer. With a background in location management and production of commercials, television, features and drama, our goal is to make as many of these as possible carbon aware. We believe that a carbon footprint made in the UK should be offset in the UK, primarily through planting and caring for new native woodland here in Great Britain. We acknowledge that carbon offsetting is not enough to counter global warming, however we do feel it is a step in the right direction.
