Interreg Europe aka Green Screen features us

By | Blog

Green Screen aims to reduce the carbon footprint of European film and TV production.

The film and TV industries are a successful driver for growth across Europe, but they are also a major source of carbon emissions. Productions move between locations and affect the environment through their use of transport, construction, lighting, catering and water.

Green Screen will share best practice in sustainable production across Europe. We will encourage film and TV production companies and their suppliers to adopt green measures, train staff and create new jobs linked to sustainable working. Our partners will also develop regional policies to support sustainable practice.


Recently Green Screen got in touch with us and, impressed by our facilities, asked if they could feature us in some forthcoming articles. We of course were delighted!

Firstly we were featured in one of their case studies, the PDF report can be found here.

Then we were mentioned in this article, a report on a green panel discussion at the Berlinale in February, where their CEO Adrian Wootton mentioned Scenery Salvage as an example of good practice.

We are also being mentioned in a feature in the latest edition of Green Film Shooting magazine, launched at the Berlinale.

Finally Interreg (who funds Green Screen) will be including the report within their learning platforms as a ‘Good Practice’ item, once approved.

Loads of thanks to Louise Vale, Project Coordinator at Green Screen who made all this happen!

Scenery Salvage Tour and Workshop

Julie’s Bicycle paired up with the RSA’s Great Recovery to host a tour of Scenery Salvages’ recycling facility

This was followed by a practical workshop with the RSA’s Great Recovery. Using their ‘Four Design Models’ for the circular economy, we examined redesign, the value of materials we use, and how to reduce environmental impacts.
