Hammersmith & Fulham Council in London has the ambitious target of creating a carbon net zero borough by 2030 by enabling the local community to take climate action together.

When they asked us to help them gather support for their ‘climate bond’ project – their new financial initiative – we stepped up with enthusiasm. This is a project close to our hearts: it aligns with our values and beliefs about the planet, and many of our team members live in the borough.

This new investment opportunity allows the local community to fund climate and ecological projects in Hammersmith & Fulham. By aiming to raise up to £5 million over the next few years, this is the most ambitious target ever set by a local authority. It will allow local groups, residents and businesses – as well as external investors – an opportunity to make a direct impact in their community, help the borough council reduce carbon emissions and, all the while, earn a fixed return on their low-risk investment. It’s a win-win-win, and one we’re proud to be involved with.

To show our commitment to the cause, we endeavoured to track and reduce our emissions at each stage of the production, using the Ad Green Calculator.

Through our efforts of travelling by bike, using an e-cargo bike for travelling shots, eating veggie meals on set, and powering our office with certified renewable energy, our footprint amounted to 0.018t CO2e … a fraction of the industry average!

As of 7th February, the first round of funding for Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s Green Investment fund closed ahead of schedule, as it reached its target of raising £1million for green infrastructure projects. Congrats to all at the Council – we’re thrilled that such a great initiative has generated so much interest, and that our film has played a central role in helping raise awareness, and funding.

Our films now play a key role in the commencement of the second round of funding, which kicked off on March 4th.
