Company Culture

Universal Design

Flexibility

Universal Design is one of the core values at the heart of the studio’s thinking. 59 Productions aims to produce work that can be accessed, understood, and enjoyed to the greatest extent possible by all audiences, regardless of age, size, gender, ability or disability.

Equitable Use

59 Productions understands disability within the Social Model. This means people are not disabled because of their bodies or minds but because of society’s physical and behavioural barriers. In this context, we believe it is on us, as a design studio and production company, to ensure all audiences are considered, and no one is left behind.

Accessibility

The accessibility of our work can be considered throughout a project’s development, from its concept to its completion and from its design details to its marketing and communication. In order to produce the best work possible, we encourage conversations on the topic of universal design with clients and collaborators.

Our commitment

59 Productions is committed to using the imagination and talent of the team to create experiences for everyone and ensure our stories are inclusively shared.

Company Culture

Belonging & Inclusion

An open approach

59 Productions works globally and we recognise that people from some backgrounds are disadvantaged when joining and participating in the industries we work in. We aim to create an environment where everyone can belong and feel included. We open-up the conversation to the wider staff so that everyone’s voices are heard. We believe this improves the quality of our work.

Diversity and opportunity

Alongside building this environment for increased belonging and inclusion, we also recognise the lack of diversity and representation in the industry as a whole and give attention to the routes by which people enter our industries and find potential opportunities. 

In both recruitment to our core team and building our project teams, we identify and acknowledge our responsibility towards addressing these systemic barriers, contributing to change. It is our ambition that with ongoing work, our company would more accurately reflect the society in which we largely reside in London and the audiences we reach globally.

Company Culture

Sustainability

Tangible action

59 Productions understands the urgent need to take action towards climate change. A future where creativity thrives, asks for more sustainable approaches to making work. 

Steps we can take: 

Track the CO2e of all major projects. By ‘major’, we mean those that operate in large-scale environments and carry a significant effect on a public place. 

Take active measures to ensure we reduce CO2E by…

Steering projects towards low-carbon power generation.

Design and fabricate only materials with C02E and other environmental data available from the manufacturer.

Select materials from the above with the lowest-possible CO2e credentials, whilst remaining fit-for-purpose. 

Scale back on the use of non-reusable materials, designing to incorporate rental and other re-deployable components where we can.

And more generally, we’ll continue to analyse the sustainability of all major projects and look at lessons learnt. 

Embrace our responsibilities

Design thinking and imagination, aligned with science-based targets and circular economy principles, have the potential to be a powerhouse for progress. We have a responsibility to lead by example as we aim to reduce any negative impacts of our work on the environment. 

Minimise our impact

59 Productions commits to continually and relentlessly exploring innovation and testing creative ways to reduce our impact and collaborate with our clients, partners, and suppliers to monitor and minimise impact.

Making real change

As an example of our commitment to this, please see our sustainability case study on the About Us project.
