The carbon calculator: the essential eco-responsible tool for audiovisual productions to calculate your environmental footprint.
The Carbon Calculator is a tool that allows all productions, regardless of genre or budget, to measure their carbon footprint using an easy-to-use platform created specifically for the sector. The tool also offers a carbon footprint reduction plan to help productions take steps to reduce their carbon footprint.
The tool was developed by Albert, an organization founded in 2011 in the UK and governed by an industry consortium that helps all actors working in film and television to support them in their transition to positive environmental change.
The carbon calculator has been adapted to the environmental reality of Quebec (e.g. hydroelectricity) and is now available in French.
