Hybrid Vehicles for Vancouver Film Industry
Please add your name to the list, below, to say that you are willing to introduce hybrid vehicles into your current and/or future productions.
Comments are welcomed.
Fuel consumption during filming is a significant component of a production's carbon emissions. Currently, the industry is limited by what’s available for infrastructure and greener options. Things like electric genies and trucks are part of the future, but not a practical solution for the present
One thing that we can do however is switch a portion of a production's transport fleet to hybrid vehicles. Hybrids produce about 25% of emissions compared to fossil fuel dependent vehicle. The challenge with this is a simple one; supply.
Rental companies need to know that there is a demand for Hybrid fleets from the industry so that they can provide the supply. The goal of this form is to show industry support and commitment for renting Hybrid vehicles for production fleets. Ultimately, additional rentals will be offset with fuel savings or better.
