The Italian Film Commissions have officially recognised the Green Film Protocol adopted and promoted by the Trentino Film Commission as an industry standard and sharable tool to encourage environmental sustainability on sets. Considering the importance of having a reliable verification process and valid certification system, the association has identified the Green Film protocol as solid and exportable to the rest of the country.
Green Film was established in 2017 to promote and encourage sustainability in productions in Trentino by offering audiovisual producers guidelines on running a sustainable set and sustainability certifications for those projects demonstrating serious commitment to reducing their impact on the environment.
The protocol was updated in 2019 to make it applicable to other territories and accessible to international co-productions. The certification process relies on a network of independent auditors, made up of public institutions or private companies with proven experience in environmental issues and sustainability: their involvement makes it possible to guarantee a uniform standard in certification applicable across the regions.
