Sustainability Management - Course

Deadline: 1 augustus

The International Screen Institute’s aim is to be one of Europe’s leading media, film and television training providers. It will combine world class experts, practical & digital learning techniques and presentations. Our ambition is to educate and connect international industry professionals working both in fictional and factual content and bring international Film and TV experts to Austria.

Sustainability Management

There is a plentiful offer across Europe dedicated to green producing, however, to get to carbon zero as an industry we need to apply these standards to every aspect of our industry and that means looking at all the businesses and sectors operating within it. No film/TV series will be truly carbon zero until the businesses and people involved across the whole process and value chain are operating sustainably. The current pandemic has triggered and enabled a re-evaluation of how we work and collaborate, therefore we are introducing social sustainability into the mix. Other industries, e.g. fashion and food production, consider fair treatment & pay and sustainable working conditions as an integral part of the sustainability discussion and so does ISI. We want to help create an industry which respects the environment and the people within it. This course will have a strong emphasis on green business and project management, however, will also look at social sustainability in terms of sustainable work models that promote productivity while respecting and promoting the wellbeing of the work force and collaborators and create and promote inclusivity for collaborators of all backgrounds. Sustainability Management will take participants through all aspects of running a company or project in a sustainable manner from energy supply, business travel to what to consider when buying cleaning materials. It also will look at new work and collaboration models based on the principles of fairness and safety at the workplace and as a European course will promote setting common European standards and certificates.
