GREEN PRODUCTION GUIDE TOOLKIT


The tools below were created by the studios and industry professionals to help you plan, communicate, implement, and track sustainable production practices on your set. If you’re new to sustainable production, take a look at our note to producers here before you get started.

Read each description and download as needed, or download the entire toolkit here.


Sustainable Practices Checklist
(Peach & Peach+)

The PEACH (Production Environmental Actions Checklist) & PEACH+ (with added measures) include practices that each department can implement throughout production. Go through the document with each department in prep to start your planning, and then again at wrap to find out what was achieved. The PEACH also serves as an application for an Environmental Media Association Green Seal (just save and send to EMA to apply).

Carbon Footprint Calculator
(PEAR)

The PEAR (Production Environmental Accounting Report) is a tool to measure the environmental impact of your production based on the energy used in offices and on stages, the fuel used in vehicles and generators, and the emissions from air travel and accommodations. The PEAR can also report on waste, donations, and other environmentally-impactful purchases like water bottles, plywood, and paper.

Plywood Tracking Worksheet
(Plum)

The PLUM (Production Lumber Material) worksheet tracks your plywood usage, primarily focusing on Lauan/Meranti, ensuring it is responsibly sourced.

Best Practices Infographics

These infographics can be used as a helpful visual guide to review sustainable best practices in the office, on location, and on stage.

Food & Material Donations

Often times reducing waste can also mean giving back to the local community. Here are resources to help you donate excess food or set materials.

Communications & Fact Sheets

Use these e-Memo templates, signs, and fact sheets to learn more and communicate with your crew as they are hired on and throughout production.

Additional Resources

Below are partners and organizations that provide additional programs, resources, and recognition for sustainable production, both behind-the-scenes and on screen.
