Tenerife Film Commission promotes more sustainable shootings through a Decalogue of best practices for audio-visual productions
By means of this document, it is intended that the national and international shootings that take place on this island are more respectful with the environment.
The audio-visual industry, like many others, also contributes to the environmental degradation. That is the reason why the Tenerife Film Commission has decided to elaborate this Decalogue, which contributes to make shootings more sustainable from its beginning: to choose few locations to shoot and that these are close to each other, find out what is the environmental regulation, to promote the local employment and to always bear in mind the effects that the production will have on this place.
On the other hand, it is also very important to inform every department about the sustainability goals and measures that will be taken, as well as make the results obtained public. In addition, the gear’s transport, catering, use and acquisition, energy and water usage are other issues covered in this Decalogue. And by all means always using material resources rationally (reduce, reuse and recycle) and opting for local choices.
Alberto Bernabé, Vice president and Tourism insular Counselor, says that “this document has the aim to act as a guide for national and international shootings to be more respectful with the environment, bearing in mind that sustainability requires that economic growth, social inclusion and environmental protection must be in harmony”.
