Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Productions
Malaga Film Office is very aware and committed to respecting the environment and favours any new sustainable development actions geared at preventing and minimising the environmental impact that can stem from Film & TV production carried out in Malaga. We have to ensure that these activities take place based on quality, health safety and a criteria that will contribute to a sustainable development with significant added value for society.
To acheive this goal, MFO is collaborating with Promalaga in the European GREEN SCREEN program and, alongside the Municipal Department of Environmental Development, various steps and tools have been implemented to help you acheive a Green Film Production:
- Environmental Advisory Office: Prior to filming, you will receive a report of sustainable measures tailored to your production. This process is completely free of charge and will also allow you to obtain an environmental certification.
- Eco-Friendly Suppliers, for a green production.
- Recycle Points, in proximity of your filming locations.
- Green Support Tools, to prevent and/or compensate for the possible negative impact:
- 10 Commandments for a Sustanaible Production
- Sustainable Filming Guide
- Environment Footprint Calculator
- Calculator User Manual
Furthermore, we recommend:
- The use of materials that do not harm the environment.
- Recycling of all paper, glass, organic waste, etc, created by the production, in order to reduce deforestation and pollution.
- Limiting the use of polluting emissions (gases from vehicles, oils…).
- A civic-minded attitude in daily habits, such as; not throwing cigarette butts or similar waste products on public streets and grounds.
- The use of recycled and low consumption products, contributing in this way to lower energy consumption.
- All defective and useless cables, metals, props, etc., must be collected and disposed of properly.
Let’s make a change and protect the most important location we have … OUR PLANET!
