Ecology and sustainability are playing a growing role in the fi lm industry. Leonardo DiCaprio, George Clooney and Angelina Jolie and many others in Hollywood have spoken out in public about the need for a better climate protection policy.
This is also true for Bavaria Film. The name of our location - “Grünwald” - is our guiding principle and also an obligation to make our own contribution towards protecting the environment – by switching to renewable energies and a consistent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions. We are consequently very pleased that Bavaria Film has been operating as the world‘s fi rst climate neutral studio since 2013.
Our Green Studio Policy and two important changes in strategy have achieved the following: environmentally-friendly geothermal energy provides our heating, and our electricity is supplied by hydropower and photovoltaic power. As a result, we have been able to save 95% of the greenhouse gas emissions on the studio lot. Saving resources and reducing emissions is our goal!
Whoever wants to produce a climate neutral fi lm is therefore in the best of hands at Bavaria Film.
