How to succeed at Albert Certification and Planet Placement

without being overwhelmed

Wednesday 8th December 2021 – by Zoom
6pm start (approx. 90 mins)

Albert Certification is becoming a mandatory requirement for many productions (inc UKTV, Sky and ITV at present and in January 2022, the BBC), and recently, many  broadcasters have also signed up to The Climate Pledge.

With ambitious plans for climate themes in commissioning, developing and producing content, there is no better time to learn about Albert Certification.

The PMA Green Wing is bringing together industry experts to give their ‘top tips’ for achieving Certification.  The panel will discuss the nuts and bolts of making the process easier.

Come and hear about:

  • Carbon Action Plans
  • Planet Placement
  • Reducing the Carbon Footprint of every production department
  • How to engage your teams, suppliers and audiences in taking action to reduce  environmental impact.

The panel of experts includes Charlotte Westlake from Albert, Rachel Lyon from UKTV and Steve Smith from Picture Zero.

This event is open to anyone.  FREE for members of the PMA and anyone on the PMA’s JPS list.   £25 for anyone else. 

Payment in advance via Paypal.  Register your interest in attending, by clicking the REGISTER for EVENT button, or by emailing to
