Antonio Saillant is not only a film producer; he also known as a passionate renaissance man for the environment. He’s been focusing on his environmental work, which led to EarthKind Energy.
Ron Kamen, the Chairman of EarthKind Energy works extensively with the government at local, State and Federal levels to ensure a favorable climate for solar development. EarthKind Energy is assisting the solar adoption goals of NYS by participating in Governor Cuomo’s NY-Sun Initiative, which estimates a quadrupling of customer-sited photovoltaic capacity, and is supporting THE MASTER plan for accelerating energy-saving improvements in state facilities. Kamen has a very ambitious plan for government involvement in solar energy. Both Kamen and Saillant are major supporters of solar technology and its potential to play a major role in creating sustainability.
Kamen stated “EarthKind Energy creates a unique business synergy that offers clients in the marketplace a powerful ally to lead them from start to finish on cleaning their energy supply, whether from development of on-site renewable energy projects or via the purchase of ‘green power’ through the grid.”
Saillant states, “By including EarthKind Energy we look forward to the expanded growth that will be propelled by this next evolution of our business model.”
This strategy is a very positive idea for not only the entertainment business but also a way of spreading it to the world. Saillant being a leading voice for the energy policy to protect the quality of life and truly dedicated to tackle our region’s energy challenges and harness the economic opportunities presented by clean renewable energy. His strong background in sustainable and energy conservation in building design, construction and entertainment.
Saillant was the Director of Sustainable for many companies and an Energy Consultant for Con Edison, one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the United States, and various pharmacological companies. He learned to combine his knowledge of the energy business with the entertainment industry in hopes of contributing to a more sustainable future in everything he accomplishes.
Saillant said, “I have worked with Ron for many years and he has an amazing ability to develop and implement a business strategy that leverages EarthKind Energy’s years of experience in renewable energy.”
Saillant was among the famous faces at the large march that took place on September 21, 2014 in New York City where the World leaders were at the United Nations to talk climate action. And tens of thousands of people from across the globe took to the streets demanding a plan.
Saillant saved energy and money in Radio City Music Hall and in most of the hospitals and universities in New York City and in New Jersey. He saved energy to most of the largest pharmaceuticals in the world including most of the Federal and City buildings in New York City and the World Bank in Washington DC. In addition to most of the municipal buildings and the street lighting in Glencove, Long Island and the City of Bayonne in New Jersey including all the firehouses.
Saillant says, “I will never stop trying and what I decided to do was to bring the energy business to the entertainment business to expand, so I have created Planet Greenfest, in order to continue my love of filmmaking and combine it with my PASSION with saving this planet.”
With Planet Greenfest, they can make great films and be green. Not films about the green movement, but films that are entertaining, well directed, shot beautifully, and with a fantastic story at the heart of it all. The film industry has traditionally been wasteful in how it uses all its resources. With the help of future generations of filmmakers, Saillant hopes all want to change that, by making films that are as ecologically conscious as possible without compromising on the quality of the films we make.
This announcement from Angel Light Pictures is the culmination of his efforts. Saillant is proud to continue his support and believes that the changes strengthen the ability of EarthKind Energy to facilitate solar development here in New York State and beyond.
Saillant says, “If people cannot find within their strength to save our world, then we will probably lose every resources in our planet, from the North Pole to the South Pole and all the great land and oceans and small rivers in between. It is not just the planet we stand to lose, it is the very idea of the human race.”
Dramatic you say? But true.
Saillant truly believes we can use the entertainment business to send a message to a worldwide audience about the environmental issues of global warming and climate change. Aim for momentum. The future is to become environmentally responsible, providing the world with the tactics and strategies for a greener world.
