Clear Cut Group is awarded DPP Committed to Sustainability Mark
Clear Cut Group has been awarded the DPP Committed to Sustainability mark. The DPP Committed to Sustainability programme is an industry-leading scheme celebrating and promoting good practice in environmental sustainability across the media sector. This recent accreditation sees Clear Cut Pictures join a select group of media and technical businesses who are working to provide a greener future and demonstrate a commitment to continuous reduction in their environmental impact.
Karla Lucas, General Manager said “We take everything into consideration to ensure we are minimizing our carbon footprint. Being awarded the DPP Committed to Sustainability mark is a proud moment for us. The evaluation process was rigorous and consolidated our good practice and gave us loads of ideas for what else we can do to get us to the next level.”
The Group aims to constantly reduce its environmental footprint. The team follow guidelines for good practice, across a range of large and small measures, so everyone can help – for example, Clear Cut Group’s buildings are powered by 100% renewable energy; the full life-cycle of every product is considered in purchasing decisions; the team follow WEEE disposal guidelines; staff use public transport for business travel; there is extensive cycle parking on site; the businesses in the group are committed to recycling waste and nothing goes to landfill; and we offer Fairtrade kitchen supplies on site. The list goes on…
Rowan Bray, MD at Clear Cut “We are delighted that our efforts to reduce our environmental impact have been recognised in this way. The scheme is aimed directly at technical companies and broadcasting organisations – it is the right assessment for us as a post-production house. Clear Cut is the first independent post-production house to achieve the high standards of the DPP Committed to Sustainability assessment. As a business we endeavour to deliver creative and technical excellence in all that we do, doing it with the least possible impact on the environment is a natural extension of our core values. We will continue to seek new ways to reduce our environmental impact.”
The DPP describes the scheme as follows: In the face of growing concern about climate change, many in the media industry are becoming aware of the need to play their part in improving the sustainability of our industry. That’s why we developed the DPP Committed to Sustainability programme. The programme provides a practical tool to assess your organisation’s progress against key environmental measures, and a common framework for procurement teams to assess the environmental impact of their suppliers. Most of all, it enables you to better understand your organisation’s current status, and demonstrate a commitment to continuous improvement.
