We at La Paz commit to producing sustainably-made films, now and into the future.

Sustainable Creative Charter Pledge

The Sustainable Creative Charter is a number of guidelines for those working in the creative industries to follow to ensure that the work they produce is sustainable.




Be conscious of who you work with; Keep ideas, and the materials it takes to make them, simple and circular; Reduce energy consumption & switch to green energy; invest money into ‘good’ places (banks, pensions, investments) rather than bad.


Publicise short and long term sustainability goals, reflect on them in meetings; Be transparent about progress; Use creativity to engage people emotionally with narratives; Track deeds, not words. Celebrate improvements rather than perfection.


Encourage action, call out greenwashing or misinformation; collaborate inclusively; Be willing to make sacrifices.


Be open, honest and truthful to values; Take time to look beyond the day to day business and build reflection into work.



The audiovisual and film sector releases millions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere every year and generates a growing amount of waste and pollution.

Green Production is an important way to counteract this. In simple ways, production can be made much more sustainable.

In addition, if we as filmmakers are creating narratives that are helping to define the way audiences see the world around them, then it is important we are doing so with sustainable practices and measures in place, both in front of and behind the camera. The more we set precedent and normalise sustainably-minded behaviour, the more the wider world will begin to change.

We commit to:

Beginning every project with a review areas where we can cut excess waste, recycle materials, use green energy, and ensure the goals of the project reflect our overall goals.

Ensure that, if there is budget an Eco/Green Supervisor will be hired to review sustainability measures. If budget is not available, producers will take on this role and publish their findings in pre-production/shooting/post-production.

Ensuring that we only travel by plane when absolutely necessary, and if so, to offset our carbon emissions by investing in projects and tree-planting endeavours which promote old-growth forests and the natural biodiversity of the land it occurs in.

Only using meat products in our catering where an allergy prevents it, or the meat can be proven to come from an organic, non-factory farmed source.

Save paper by only using digital Call Sheets, Schedules, and Scripts. Use fully recyclable/ compostable products in our catering & any essential paper needs.

Receiving certification on any Feature Film productions we are involved in from Green Film.

    The cost of being a Green Production is going down fast, but sometimes this does mean that budget for some areas (such as travel) might increase slightly. This is something we will discuss up front and come to an agreement on in advance of the shooting stage.

    Watch This Space

    Narratives that present positive futures are incredibly important. They ensure that our children can look to their future with optimism. We’re going to be investing in this more and more as the globe begins to focus its attention, and are working with Climate Action Community Berlin to help shape these stories.
