It was with great discontent that we learned about the United States' decision to leave the Paris Agreement yesterday.
The entertainment industry is an international industry with many lighting designers and technicians travelling frequently as part of their jobs, accompanying productions across borders and continents. We at Capture interact with manufacturers and customers around the world on a daily basis, from California in the US to Auckland on New Zealand.
The world is our workplace.
When nations decide not to pull their own weight we cannot stand by and idly watch. Capture can help shave off production times, power consumption and some of the environmental strains of our industry, but this may not be enough. Therefore we have begun researching how we could add an Environmental Protection Surcharge to orders from such nations in an effort to route funds to environmental organizations.
