Art Partner Sustainability Initiative
Zero Footprint Zero Waste’ by 2020
Since 2017, Art Partner has been committed to becoming a Certified Carbon Neutral artists management and creative content agency. We began the Earth Partner project with the goal to achieve Zero Footprint Zero Waste and Carbon Neutral Certification by 2020.
Phase I of the project, “Sustainable Office,” implemented significant waste reduction practices at our offices in London, Paris and New York.
Based on over a year’s worth of research, consultation and beta tests, Earth Partner now introduces Phase II: Sustainable Production Partnership, which expands Art Partner’s sustainable best practices to our global production services.
We acknowledge that aspects of our work in the creative industry come at an environmental cost, and we are working to address our impacts globally. In partnership with our clients, artists, production partners and vendors, we can go beyond creating beautiful visual content and use our collective talents, strengths, and influence to minimize our environmental footprint and strive for a net positive business impact.
As of today, an Earth Partner production will be distinguished by: digital invoices and call sheets; bins for plastic, paper and metal recycling; composting bins; use of hybrid cars and shared transportation; absence of single-use plastic; donation, re-use and recycling of set materials; donation of leftover food; and carbon offsets for air and local transportation, production vehicles and shipping and messenger services.
Importantly, these efforts will be quantifiable and accountable. To measure our impact, we have partnered with Econometrica Inc., a leading research organization which will gather and analyze data via an online tool. To ensure that our carbon offsets deliver a truly meaningful, immediate, and positive impact on the world’s natural capital, we have retained Natural Capital Partners, who have been helping organizations reduce their carbon emissions for 20 years. We have selected their, Alto Mayo REDD+ project, which aims to conserve the ecologically rich Alto Mayo Protected Forest in the Peruvian Amazon.
With our Earth Partner initiative, we aim to offer the highest level of excellence in our services while showing the highest level of respect for our planet. We invite you to stand with us in this ambitious effort, which we hope will become a standard in our industry. Together we can make a difference!
We are aiming to reduce the waste and carbon footprint from our productions and have developed a checklist of best practices. To learn more about our initiative and join us on this effort, please download our production sustainability tool kit in the link below.
