Our Commitment to the Environment, Diversity and Fairness
VideoWorks is a dynamic video marketing agency and understands that every company has a role to play when it comes to our environment and green issues but also in terms of its inclusiveness to people from diverse backgrounds.
Our environmental statement for video production underscores our real commitment to eco-friendly video production and filmmaking practices. As a responsible company within the industry, we prioritise sustainability at every stage of production. From utilising energy-efficient lighting and equipment to minimising waste and carbon emissions, our green filmmaking initiatives are aimed at reducing our environmental footprint. We’re proud to incorporate low-impact set design and eco-conscious cinematography techniques into our projects, ensuring that we not only deliver exceptional videos but also do our part to protect our planet. With our environmental commitment, we aim to inspire the film industry to embrace sustainable practices and so proving that high-quality video production can go hand-in-hand with environmental strategies.
To that end, we have a robust Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Governance Structure in place. VideoWorks’ EHS Manual provides governance structure for the management of environmental, health and safety aspects of company operations. It provides processes for setting and achieving EHS objectives and targets; establishing, implementing and updating EHS Management Programmes; allocating roles, responsibilities and resource to achieving objectives and conforming with the requirements of the management system and manual; measuring EHS performance, and ensuring continual EHS performance management and improvement.

With respect to delivery of this project, our staff will examine all environmental considerations associated with the scope and recommend the use of sustainable practices and materials, in order to prevent or minimise their environmental impact while still meeting the required functionality.
The works will be carried out by a core team following a standard operating procedure with clear roles, responsibilities and quality control established at the outset. A core team implementing this procedure consistently will result in time and energy efficiencies across the project scope and a uniformity across project deliverables.
Flexible Working Practices
Project meetings and correspondences with the client, and any third parties, will be carried out remotely and online, saving on environmental impacts associated with travel. VideoWorks also have a well-established and proven hybrid working programme which facilitates staff to work both at home and from the office, and also facilitates cross-office collaboration.

VideoWorks also employs a “Green Purchasing” policy, ensuring that all products and services are selected to have minimal environmental impact. Only monitors and computers with an Energy Star Logo are purchased and running and standby costs are compared when deciding on computer equipment.
