Carbon Literate Production

Our Certification for Carbon Literacy

Daniel Mulligan


Carbon Literacy is the knowledge and capacity required to create a positive shift in how mankind lives, works and behaves in response to climate change.

The Carbon Literacy Project defines Carbon Literacy as “an awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis.”[3]

Open Source Cinema is endorsing this approach for Film & TV Productions.
