The Legacy Project started with a desire to offset carbon emissions from our productions and give back to the communities in which movies and shows are filmed; it has become a Sony Pictures direct feature film requirement. Sony Pictures’ commitment not only helps offset the carbon footprint of each film production, but also makes an environmental contribution in a specific area.
