New Planet Positive Animation Network to help the sector reach net zero

CAF launches new network, plus resources, events and support services to help animation companies and freelancers become more sustainable.

Cardiff, Wales – 1 July 2022 – Today, Cardiff Animation Festival (CAF) has launched a new Planet Positive Animation Network to help animation, VFX and games companies and freelancers become environmentally sustainable.

Hosted on Discord, the new network will be a space for the sector to access and share resources and inspiration relevant to the animation, games and VFX industries, and work together to reach net zero.

The UK currently has a target to reach net zero green house gas (GHG) emissions by 2050. But scientists worldwide have called for more ambitious targets to curb global warming. CAF wants to help the animation, VFX and games industries reach net zero sooner.

While the new network will be hosted digitally, CAF has plans to run events enabling members to meet and share ideas in person. CAF is also sharing online resources, and is offering a consultancy service for animation companies who want a little more help reaching net zero or becoming environmentally sustainable.
