The carbon calculator has been developed from BAFTA albert’s established online tool for the Film and TV production community. The tools share the same core calculator functionality, ensuring both industries benefit from upgrades and insight, but AdGreen’s has a unique structure including bespoke user types and security rules relevant to the industry’s many stakeholders. This also means the tool can flex as needed for contributors working in various different ways from one project to another.
The methodology of albert’s core calculator is available here and covers the factors used to calculate the carbon of each activity input into a project. As an example, the calculator has a database of 309 electricity emission factors for different countries and states, meaning that wherever the office, studio or location is, the associated carbon will be relative to the location.
