the International Classic Film Market is committed

Convinced of the necessity to contribute to the awareness of the professional community on the one hand and to reduce its environmental impact on the other hand, the MIFC has been working towards eco-friendly certification since 2022.



> Carbon footprint measurement

The Carbon Footprint methodology is the reference tool for measuring an organization's carbon impact. In 2022, the MIFC is initiating this process and will be supported by La Base in the implementation of this Bilan Carbone. The aim of this impact assessment and action plan construction phase is to help the MIFC identify priority issues and build a long-term action plan.

A carbon audit will be carried out each year to measure the impact of the actions implemented.
