If no one is available to oversee a production’s sustainability efforts from the onset, success rates are much lower. The emerging role of the Eco Supervisor is proving crucial to that success. An Eco Supervisor is a resource, a seasoned production professional, and functions as a department head alongside other crew department heads.
This person has an exclusive focus on implementing and managing systems from prep through wrap, and problem-solves in conjunction with all departments as the unique challenges of production arise. Depending on the scale of the production, Eco Assistants could be utilized when daily waste management increases dramatically due to a surplus of crew or extras.
