Sustainability

Wolf Studios Wales, and the Bad Wolf productions who are based here, are constantly aiming to reduce our carbon footprint and we do this in the following ways:

  • We are proud to have taken part for the second year running in @wearealbert’s Studio Sustainability Standard, a voluntary initiative to support film and TV studios to become zero carbon, zero waste facilities and to help productions in their own sustainability journeys.
  • We support our productions with their albert certification and engagement with their suppliers.
  • We constantly review activities through our Sustainability Group and have a green procurement policy, which we use to vet suppliers.
  • We run a circular economy model, which re-uses costumes, props and office/location items or donates them to charities and local colleges and companies.
  • We have introduced paperless clock in and out systems.

We also:

  • encourage recycling and we are 0% waste to landfill
  • use 100% green electricity and are 98% LED lit
  • offset our carbon footprint annually
  • look for ways to reduce the waste we produce
  • offer composting and food donations to local charities
  • use rainwater for our garden which has biodiverse planting
  • work with Initiative for Nature Conservation Cymru on a new biodiversity project
  • use bio cleaning products
  • offer electric car charging
  • offer a free shuttle bus from Cardiff City Centre to the Studio and back
  • collect clothes and household items for Welsh charity Ty Hafan
  • Our limited single-use plastics are used by a local company to make playground surfaces
  • Staff, crew and guests are trained and encouraged to act sustainably when on site
