Carbon Literacy Project

Our CEO Karen Emanuel is officially Carbon Literate. She participated the Carbon Literacy Project organised by the BAFTA albert Consortium to learn more about the effects of carbon emissions and how she could reduce her carbon emissions both personally and for Key Production. Karen stated “The first part of the training when we were told the hard facts made me want to throw myself from a very tall building. After the second part of the training, we realised that by taking action (particularly governments but also individually) we can make changes that will help the world”. This will help Key to learn more and become more sustainable and aware of our carbon footprint and how we could reduce this.

She also attends the meetings held by ERA which discuss sustainable packaging in entertainment and what steps the entertainment industry can take towards being more sustainable. The meetings include independent and major labels, the BPI, BBC, AIM, distributors, retailers and manufacturers.

Karen made some pledges both personally and for the business at the end of the course to:

  1. Stop using her car to get to work (she now use the bus or a bike) and in the future – hybrid car or no car
  2. Eat less meat, especially red meat
  3. Try to persuade our landlords to change their electricity supplier to a green supplier (when we first came to Tileyard we persuaded them to start a recycling scheme)
  4. Carbon balance our office and travel. (We are working with CLevel to do this and Karen has visited the forests and spoken to the farmers involved in the projects)
  5. Research all of our suppliers to find out what they are doing to become more sustainable (in process)
  6. Look at the feasibility of carbon balancing in manufacturing

Further to this, in order to reduce our carbon and to be greener, we have started to use Fair-Well for zero waste shopping.

In the coming months we will also be able to offer carbon-balanced manufacturing and enable our clients to offset their flights through our partnership with CLevel.
