RTS Cymru Wales is delighted to host COP a Load of This: a live panel seminar to coincide with COP26 – featuring four key leaders in sustainable production to explain their own experience in reducing their carbon footprints, and discuss the Climate road ahead.
How can the industry prepare itself and navigate this crucially important subject? What are we already doing - as a sector, to reduce our carbon footprint? Which funding streams are available to production companies? And what will happen if we don’t act?
Our panel comprises four leaders in the sustainable production world, each representing key output sectors.
- As Manager of Responsible Production, Jo Finon is responsible for Sky Sports’ award-winning Sustainability strategy, driving change across the entire outside broadcast industry, in a rapid-turnaround, high-pressure environment.
- Sally Mills is Head of Operations and Sustainability Lead for BBC Studios Productions, managing the services core to the operation of the business, and championing mandatory training.
- Greg Mothersdale is a Research and Development (R&D) Producer at Clwstwr – an innovation programme for the south Wales screen sector. Greg is Clwstwr's lead on environmental sustainability, championing a more sustainable screen sector in Wales and beyond.
- BAFTA award-winning playwright, screenwriter and producer at Joio, Roger Williams works in both English and Welsh. His cop drama BANG won the first ever Green Award at the 2020 Edinburgh TV Festival – recognising the production's enormous strides to improve sustainability.
The session will be hosted by RTS Cymru Wales’ digital manager, and Managing Director of Siml, Owen Williams – a lifelong recycler!
