Being a sector that conveys messages and shapes collective representations, it is necessary to engage and support our sector in virtuous environmental practices.
Many companies then emerged with the aim of supporting, advising and training production companies in this new way of producing.

It is in this spirit that Ecoprod was born. Created in 2009 by ADEME, AUDIENS, the Ile de France Film Commission, DIRECCTE IDF, France Télévisions and TF1, Ecoprod's mission is to raise awareness in this vast sector of its environmental impact.

Since 2021, Ecoprod has been an association whose founding members are Audiens, the Canal + group, the CST, Film Paris Region, the France TV group and the TF1 group, supported by Afdas and the CNC.
The association wants to be an independent place, for cooperation and exchanges, as well as a resource center to raise awareness, train and concretely support professionals with tools, advice and training.
Ecoprod is intended for film professionals who wish to move towards a new way of producing their audiovisual works.
It provides productions with practical tools to produce with a more environmentally friendly approach.
