ONTARIO GREEN SCREEN, STRATEGIC PLAN
We are proud to present the Ontario Green Screen 2023-2027 Strategic Plan. Ontario Green Screen (OGS) is made possible through a partnership between Ontario Creates, industry, and municipal partners, representing all aspects of the industry across the province. Collectively, we have a shared passion to facilitate sustainable production practices.
We created the OGS Strategic Plan in collaboration with the OGS Advisory Committee and industry subject matter experts. This plan lays out specific, measurable and timely goals for the initiative, over the next four years:
- We commit to fostering an engaged, diverse, inclusive, and collaborative community that advances and enables sustainable production practices.
- We commit to informing and educating Ontario’s film and television industry stakeholders about sustainability best practices.
- We commit to creating a framework to effectively measure and report on environmental impacts and industry-wide progress.
- We commit to delivering resources, tools, and initiatives to empower individuals to incorporate sustainable strategies and protocols that will help reduce the negative environmental impacts of film production across Ontario.
