Garden Studios has placed a strong emphasis on sustainability throughout 2022 and 2023. In the beginning of January 2022, we welcomed a Head of Sustainability, dedicated to closely collaborating with our existing staff in assessing all aspects of our operations from a sustainability standpoint.
Our focus has been to establish benchmarks for energy and water consumption, waste generation, and carbon emissions. We have also instituted an extensive program of film production material upcycling. We’re in the process of pursuing a B Corp certification and received Albert Studio Sustainability Certification in 2023. To address our commitment to sustainability, we initiated several impactful initiatives, which you will be able examine in our first Impact Report.

Taking care of the environment and addressing climate change is important to us at Garden Studios. So far, we have focused on our energy supplies, waste management, eliminating single use plastic, establishing a sustainable supplier database, building community programs, calculating our carbon footprint and taking part in the Albert Studio Sustainability program.
There is a lot of work still to be done but we are well on our way.
We are looking forward to help our clients reach their sustainability goals and are very happy to discuss this further.
We have a key focus on education, fostering talent and technology, with the ambition to become London’s home for creative talent in film.
We are invested in our local community and are continuously working on finding new ways to engage, from local staff hires, and suppliers to local artist commissions. We are proud to be an accredited London Living Wage Employer.
Waste is one of our industry’s biggest challenges and our top sustainability priority is reuse by facilitating donations of our productions’ set material, props and textiles into our local community. We have built an extensive network of organisations interested in these kinds of donations and a system for distribution.
We hope that productions engage with us in this project which not only supports the local community, but also reduces production carbon footprint and skip costs.
We encourage feedback, ideas, and close cooperation in this critical area for our industry.
