BFI FAN: Green Hour is a new series of events for UK film exhibitors focusing on environmental sustainability.

Join us from 14:00 - 15:00 on Wednesday 10 January for our second edition, where we’ll explore sustainable procurement and localised resilience.

In this session, we’ll discuss how to implement ethical, low-carbon procurement processes, and the organisational demands and benefits of responsible sourcing.

Our speakers for this webinar are Natasha Padbury (Office & Sustainability Manager, Depot Cinema) and Simon Curtis (Chair, Greater Manchester Arts Sustainability Team).

Natasha and Simon will share practical examples from their experiences of working with local suppliers, and provide inspiration on how to make place-based, climate-driven decisions that lead to meaningful change.
