accreditation

CONTEXT

Considering the environmental impact of audiovisual productions, we have developed this accreditation to recognize eco-responsible productions in Quebec. It is intended for film sets that wish to undertake and have recognized a sustainable development approach. Thus, the goal of the project is to promote and encourage the implementation of eco-responsible practices in audiovisual productions.

In conclusion, to obtain the Rolling green accreditation, productions must implement a series of eco-responsible measures on their set and be able to demonstrate the actions taken.

There are three levels of accreditation:

The Commitment level is a self-declaration. The production must implement at least twelve (12) environmentally responsible actions from a pre-established list and only descriptive evidences are required.

The Performance level includes a document audit.
You must select the actions implemented on your production from a pre-established list. Each action allows you to accumulate points. Forty-five (45) points are required to qualify. Finally, you will have to give proof of the actions taken (photos, invoices, etc.).

The Excellence level includes a document audit and a visit to the site. You must select the actions implemented on your production from a pre-established list. Thus, each action allows you to accumulate points. Eighty-five (85) points are required to qualify. You are also require to show proof of the taken actions (photos, invoices, etc.) and a visit will be scheduled to validate everything.

The choice of level should be made early in the accreditation process. In fact, it is best to start the process in pre-production, as this makes planning easier. Then, you can submit your file when the shooting is over and the file is completed.  Then, it is submitted to an independent committee of environmental and audiovisual experts for deliberation. Finally, in the last step, the committee examines the evidence and, after analyzing the file, decides if the level is granted.
