Culver City – Sony Pictures Entertainment has released a Studio Sustainability Progress Report, a first of its kind environmental report for a film, TV, and commercial production facility. The report details metrics that highlight the studio lot’s environmental progress such as achieving 50% renewable electricity and 25% of the studio lighting inventory meeting energy efficient standards. In pursuit of Sony’s Road To Zero plan, to achieve a zero environmental footprint by 2050, the studio commits to continued improvement.
As a studio lot that caters to Sony Pictures as well as third party productions, the availability of the data will enable film and TV shows to more accurately calculate their carbon footprint. With the publication of this report, we hope to inspire other studios to provide metrics that help support a zero environmental footprint.
Using 2019 data, the report illustrates efforts around energy, water, and waste metrics. The report also highlights the high-impact services the studio provides its clients, including transportation, lighting, various donations, and props and wardrobe reuse.
Sony Pictures Studios is a premier facility for film and television productions of all types, offering an impressive array of sound stages, state-of-the-art post-production facilities and world-class support services amid an inspiring, historical setting.
