Phase I of the project, “Sustainable Office,” implemented significant waste reduction practices at all three of our offices in London, Paris and New York, including among other things food composting, conversion to 100% sustainable energy sources, phasing out of single use plastics in the office, significant reduction of paper and carbon offsets associated to our business operations as well as business travel.
Based on over a year’s worth of research, consultation with Eco Set and beta tests, Earth Partner introduced Phase II: Sustainable Production Partnership in January 2019, 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 are going beyond creating beautiful visual content and using our collective talents, strengths, and influence to minimize our environmental footprint and strive for a net positive business impact.
Earth Partner productions are distinguished by: comprehensive recycling; composting bins; absence of single-use plastic; carbon offsets for flights; digital invoices and call sheets; use of hybrid cars and shared transportation when possible; donation, re-use and recycling of set materials; and donation of leftover food.
Importantly, our CarbonNeutral company certification is supported by The CarbonNeutral Protocol – the global standard for carbon neutral programmes–to ensure our carbon neutral claim is robust and credible. We work with Natural Capital Partners, a world-leading provider of carbon emission reduction and renewable energy solutions, to provide independent assurance of our climate action. Natural Capital Partners has been helping organizations reduce their carbon emissions for more than 20 years.
To reach net zero emissions, we have purchased verified emission reductions (carbon credits) that have been generated from the preservation of virgin forests including the Acre Amazonian Rainforest Conservation project in Brazil, which supports 15 of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
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.

i-D Magazine / The Environmental Issue
In March 2019, the world saw the largest global youth strike with over 1.4 million students from around the world ditch school for the day to demand that their future, and that of the planet, be protected. It was the biggest day of climate action ever, and it was set off by one girl.
In the latest issue of i-D, photographer Harley Weir captures this girl: 16-year old activist and Nobel Prize-nominee Greta Thunberg, the girl who inspired this global youth movement and is changing the world in the process.
Absolut / Earth Day Installation
Dan Tobin Smith
Known for his technical and innovative installations and productions, Dan Tobin Smith was commissioned by Absolut to create a larger-than-life installation using garbage from the streets of Los Angeles.
Sorted by color and turned into a piece of art, the installation will live as a billboard in Los Angeles from April 22, 2019 (Earth Day) through the 20th, bringing Los Angelenos’ attention to human waste and their environmental impact. Encouraging viewers to consider if we threw away one less thing today than we did yesterday, we could make the world a better place for tomorrow.
