Our Sustainable commitments
With this project our partners wish to :
- Reduce the ecological footprint of the audiovisual production sector in Quebec.
- Stimulate local spin-offs and increase the socio-economic and cultural benefits of audiovisual productions.
- Reduce the consumption of energy and natural resources.
- Reduce the amount of waste produced by ensuring its recovery or recycling.
- Promote local and responsible purchasing and encourage sustainable transportation and travel management.
- Support the development of knowledge and the sharing of expertise within the industry.
Rolling Green wants to equip the audiovisual production community in their green shift but also to do so by having internal eco-practices in its activities as well as in its organizational functioning.
Representation and support
The activities we carry out are evaluated to increase their ecological impact but also to improve their social and economic, local and solidarity impacts.
When we have to go to conferences or performances, we evaluate the following possibilities in order
- Participation via videoconference
- Travel by active transportation
- By public transportation
- By carpooling
- By car as a last resort
When holding meetings, locations accessible by public transportation are preferred. In the QFTC office, washable dishes are used.
The Rolling Green accreditation is managed by a local NPO that has responsible certifications: responsible event management practices BNQ 9700-253. Its offices are certified ICI on recycle + by RECYC-QUÉBEC. CQEER also has a policy on digital sobriety in order to reduce its environmental footprint related to the increasing use of digital technology in our activities.
Marking the 1 year anniversary
To mark the first year of Rolling Green and to continue our commitment to a greener and more sustainable industry, 100 trees will be planted for the 20 productions already accredited in 2021-2022 and we are committed to continuing this action for each of the productions that will follow in the next year, at a rate of 5 trees per production.
