A Letter from Your Future Grandchildren
Back in 2020, when the weather was worse than a bad action movie and trees were valued less than a union paycheck, you did something truly amazing to change the story…
You helped launched a multi-year initiative for regenerative solutions to the climate crisis until the biosphere itself became the “industry standard”…
History tells us it started during a time when the IPCC gave us less than 10 years before catastrophic climate became the norm and you somehow ignited a worldwide movement in the entertainment industry …
You removed all plastics from your sets, served only healthy food for craft, and invested in the communities where you filmed …
You regenerated native forests, protected biodiversity in the oceans and stopped using fossil fuels …
You shifted toward carbon-negative productions, appointed sustainability managers in your line items and created tax incentives for studios who “go green” with a basic framework for how those goals are scaled or adapted for any boardroom or decision making entity …
You decided that your children – and the many generations of children ahead – were too important to ignore …
You worked together to mobilize the industry’s vast influence and resources to not just “tell the greatest story ever told”, but to live it: a tale of how the humans saved themselves from themselves and the planet we all cherish …
Ultimately, you showed yourselves that cooling the earth is as cool as chilling with your favorite star on a blue & green star that loves to tell stories of overcoming crisis at the 13th hour …
We thank you,
Your Future Grandchildren

Green The Industry is galvanizing a massive entertainment industry coalition to demand action on the climate emergency.
By activating a transformation akin to “Me Too” for the planet, Green The Industry is here to show that movies, television and media of all kinds can be profitable while caring for the earth.
Through 5 key areas of impact – 1) Water 2) Forests 3) Food 4) Energy and 5) Money – the initiative is asking for guilds, agencies, talent and studios to prioritize and partner with community groups, indigenous tribes and other pioneering conservation organizations in delivering the solutions our world needs more than ever.
The campaign supports an economically-viable shift in the environmental footprint behind productions and is helping fortify a new rubric for success in this industry.
Not only do we need new ways of producing content but we need new stories that meet the calls of our changing world.
