The American Pavilion in Cannes and Paramount's specialty divisionare teaming up to raise awareness over global warming.

The initiative ties in neatly with the out of competitionscreening of Davis Guggenheim's global warming documentary An Inconvenient Truth, which Paramount's specialty divisionwill release in the US on May 26.

The partners will use biodegradable cups, plates, cutlery andnapkins, recycle cans, bottles and paper, and install reusable carpeting at thefestival.

In addition An Inconvenient Truth executive producers ParticipantProductions will purchase renewable energy credits based on the amount ofelectricity used to run the Pavilion in a process known as carbon offsetting.
