Neptune originally specialised in producing Environmental Impact Assessments for a variety of industries, as well as beginning to work with Environmental Management Systems and ISO 14001 Certification. This interdisciplinary foundation in environmental consultancy is still fundamental to our approach here at Neptune Sustainability.
Specialist Support for Film and Television
A shift in client focus presented an exciting new set of challenges of which we quickly got stuck into. We have since worked with a variety of international studios, streamers, and industry organizations, on their strategy towards sustainable operation, across a wide range of features, HETV, and infra-structure projects.
During recent years, due to an uptick in demand for sustainability services in the industry Louise has also begun working with the Torino Film Lab to develop and present their Green Film Lab training for European Producers. We are always interested to hear about upcoming projects. Please get in touch with us today to start up a discussion.

A year with the BBC working on rolling out Albert to independent production companies, and building it into the BBC commissioning requirements.
