French entertainment company TeamTO – producers of the recent Children’s & Family Emmy-winning Netflix series City of Ghosts and other standout content including PJ Masks and Elena of Avalor among others – has long been focused on sustainable, low-carbon-footprint production, and often featured environmental and social issues in its works. Now, the company is taking another step towards conservation by relocating to a new, cutting-edge studio in Paris.
Leaving behind their old rental space, which the studio says they’d outgrown, TeamTO has spent the last two weeks moving into a newly renovated space in the Bastille neighborhood, which was constructed with environmental protocols in mind, specifically to reduce the studio’s carbon footprint. According to TeamTO, they now operate one of the most energy-efficient studios in all of France.
TeamTO co-founder Guillaume Hellouin and his staff began the company’s environmental policies 17 years ago and, and he has spent the last 15 years researching ways to reduce the company’s carbon footprint while producing content in a sustainable manner. Based on that research, TeamTO CTO Jean-Baptiste Spieser and his technical team put together the plans for the new space and implemented changes that will cut the studio’s carbon footprint by 63%.
