We love our planet
Fresco Film is a socially and environmentally committed company.
One of the objectives of Fresco Film Services’ philosophy is promoting the team’s, suppliers’ and customers’ respect for the environment. From management to the whole team, they constantly work on generating ideas and actions to reduce the ecological footprint of the company both on a day-to-day basis in production offices and when shooting outdoors. A responsible use of all consumables, choosing products that respect the environment and recycling are the company’s highest priorities.
Since the creation of Fresco Film, one of the fundamental principles of the company is to care for the environment and to that end we are taking action.
We are working on the creation of a legacy of actions in the different stages of production: pre-production, filming and wrap, where we are reducing waste, acquiring ecological materials whenever possible and implementing programs of reusing materials.
We have a wide understanding of sustainability. Not only focused on the environment, we understand that sustainability is a way of working, respecting film locations and generating local wealth (hiring local suppliers, local equipment, products and materials that respect the environment and close ...)
Some relevant dates on our journey
In 2016 to compensate both the Carbon footprint incurred during the filming of Game of Thrones in there, and to promote the recovery of natural areas, two hundred trees were planted in the Barruecos nature reserve in Cáceres.
Also that year we initiated "water in plastic = 0": avoiding supplying water in plastic bottles, offering instead refillable stainless steel bottles and recycled cardboard containers.
In 2018 we created the Department of Environmental Sustainability to unify and create standardized rules regarding respect for the environment. Creation of media to raise awareness of the importance of responsible consumption and appreciation for the collaboration in these actions.
Since 2019 we have participated in several working groups (GreenScreen, Eureka, APAS- Alianza Para la Produccón Sostenible) to share our environmental experiences in filming and to continue learning from other companies.
In 2020 the Fresco Film’s Corporate Social Responsibility line of work began, writing our first CSR Report which includes information on the social actions carried out such as:
Donations of shoot materials to NGOs, Christmas 2020 solidarity campaign.
In 2021 Fresco Film received the Malaga Environmental Quality Certificate. Malaga’s Town Hall’s Department of Environmental Sustainability has granted us this recognition for our environmental concern, and the implementation and accreditation of regulatory compliance in environmental quality.
