Everyone knows that making movies is an expensive business – but it can also be a wasteful one. From single-use water bottles and the reams of paper used on-site, to leftover costumes and set-building materials, a film can generate a lot of rubbish.
Pinewood takes its environmental responsibilities seriously and has a dedicated team that ensures the studio is as green as possible. This includes using LED lighting, adding solar panels to generate electricity, and constantly looking for ways to recycle or re-use materials and equipment wherever possible.
Andrew M Smith, Pinewood’s Corporate Affairs Director recently told an entertainment website that, “Pinewood prides itself on its green credentials and endeavours to make the studio the most sustainable in the industry.”
