Casual Films is committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.
The key points of its strategy to achieve this are:
- Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
- Minimise toxic emissions through the selection and transport decisions and the source of its power requirement.
- Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers.
- Meet or exceed all the environmental legislation that relates to the Company.
- Casual Films must be mindful that it performs project work on behalf of its clients and as the clients determine the cities used for video production, Casual’s best way to positively reduce transport is to reduce internal transport as opposed to project transport. As a result of this, overseas management meetings have been significantly reduced from four times per year to only two times per year.
Casual Films must also be mindful that in both the US and UK it rents floor space within a larger office block owned and controlled by a third party. As such, Casual Films has very limited control over the environmental impact of these buildings. Casual Films therefore seeks to make sure it has the most positive impact in the areas it can directly control, such as keeping internal energy use to an absolute minimum and always seeking to recycle.
Casual Films’ primary corporate social activity is the Casual Films Academy, a pro bono initiative to widen participation in the video industry. Charities considered for involvement with the Casual Films Academy have typically included environmental charities.
This statement has been formally approved on behalf of the Casual Films board of directors.
