The Producers Guild of America announced the expansion of its interactive Green Production Guide website, which provides the producing community with information on sustainable resources and practices.

Launched in August 2010, the Green Production Guide added several features to the site including a refined search tool, a tutorial on how to use the Carbon Calculator and a guide of the PGA’s best green practices.

Several major studios use the Carbon Calculator to measure the carbon emissions of their productions, while the guide details the most sustainable TV and film production practices.The search tool will help the producing community sift through the database of more than 1,500 worldwide vendors of sustainable goods and services.

The PGA is looking to expand the Green Production Guide with video blogs and a mobile site.

As part of the PGA Green Initiative, the PGA developed the Green Production Guide with funding from Disney, Fox, NBC Universal, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Warner Bros. The PGA is working with the BBC and the film commissions of several states to promote the Green Production Guide.
