Read more about the new specification for a sustainability management system for film.
BS 8909, a specification for a sustainability management system for film, has been designed to help the film industry run its business in a more sustainable way.
Although its full title may be a bit of a mouthful, the framework for how you achieve 360 degree sustainability has recently been trialled by a selection of high profile players within the film industry value chain from development, distribution, exhibition and production.
"BS 8909 is an exciting step forward – it gives the film industry a robust framework for managing our social and environmental impacts."
- Colin Firth
