B3 ACCOMMODATION: WITHIN 10 KM OF THE SET

Requirements

Select accommodation within a 10 km radius of the set, except when the sets are used for only one day of shooting.

Observations and suggestions

The choice of accommodation impacts on vehicle movements and consequently on polluting emissions and fuel costs; for this reason, it is important to choose accommodation that is as close as possible to shoot locations. Arranging accommodation nearby also helps to simplify transport organisation in terms of time management and to reduce the work-pace of those involved in driving vehicles.

Verification procedure

Produce the originals or copies of the following:

  • the list of accommodation facilities of the crew;
  • the corresponding invoices (or similar proof) for the accommodation;
  • the graphic evidence of the distance of accommodation from the set (example: maps/satellite photographs with distances indicated).

B4 ACCOMMODATION: CERTIFIED ACCOMMODATION FACILITIES

Requirements

As regards hotels, choose to stay in sustainable facilities with ISO 14024 third party environmental certification (such as EU Ecolabel) for at least 50% of the nights stayed.
