Calculating the carbon footprint of a Quebec feature film

Context summary: The objective of the case study of the filming of La Meute (produced by Felize Frappier) was to analyze the CO2 emissions of the various departments involved in a production in order to identify their impacts. The results can constitute an initial benchmark for other Quebec productions. In addition, this report aimed to demonstrate the different steps and actions to adopt on film sets for improving their carbon footprint. The data was collected with the help of the Quebec Council for Eco-responsible Events (CQEER), mandated to support the production in calculating the film’s carbon footprint and setting up eco-responsible actions.

Research firm: The Conseil québécois des événements écoresponsables – CQEER (Quebec Council for Eco-responsible Events), supported by Telefilm Canada, with the help of Quebec Film and Television Council (QFTC), Association québécoise de la production médiatique (AQPM), and Rolling Green.
