September 19 2016: Eco-Age, a brand consultancy founded by Livia Firth and specialising in sustainability, is to support the tve Global Sustainability Film Awards held in association with Fastflow Group.

On Monday 28 November, tve will host its annual Global Sustainability Film Awards with a high profile gala dinner at BAFTA. Companies around the globe are encouraged to enter films of up to ten minutes in length, about their innovations in sustainability and the environment, via gsfa.tve.org/enter-awards.

Eco-Age will be supporting tve with media outreach, and will be joining the judging panel selecting the winning films.

Rollo Gordon, tve’s Awards fundraiser and co-ordinator said: ‘We are thrilled that a consultancy with the passion and commitment of Eco-Age is partnering with us for this year’s Awards. tve knows the power of film to inspire change and, with the support of Eco-Age, we expect this year’s Awards to have a greater impact than ever before.’

This year’s categories reflect the global goals for sustainable development agreed by world leaders in 2015. These goals set ambitious targets for world development, including eradicating poverty and hunger; ensuring good health, quality education for all and gender equality; and setting targets for affordable and clean energy, climate action and responsible consumption and production.

‘Film is a fantastic medium to deliver important and sometimes complex messages for people and planet,’ said Juhi Shareef, Account Director at Eco-Age. ‘Having worked closely with the founder of tve, Robert Lamb, early in my career I am honoured to now be on the judging panel for tve. I am very much looking forward to seeing innovative sustainability solutions from companies around the world – what a great way to get us closer to achieving the global goals.’

This is not the first time Eco-Age has worked in the film industry. The consultancy implemented the BS 8909 sustainability management system for film at the British Film Institute; chaired the UK Film Studio Facilities Sustainability Group; supported the global release of The True Cost, a documentary that highlights the devastating impact fast fashion has on people and planet; and contributed to a directory that helps film costume designers source clothing responsibly. Eco-Age has developed unique and powerful channels of communication, including The Green Carpet Challenge® (GCC), The GCC Brandmark, Eco-Age Futures and The GCC Global Leaders of Change; the unique fusion of ethics and aesthetics.
