08 Mar ArtCan joins the Gallery Climate Coalition
ArtCan is now a member of the Gallery Climate Coalition.
The goal of the GCC is to facilitate a greener and more sustainable commercial art world. The aim is to provide guidelines and the necessary resources so that we can collectively reduce our carbon footprint by 50% over the next ten years (in line with the Paris agreement), as well as promoting near zero-waste practices.
As GCC member ArtCan will:
- Commit to a carbon estimate using the GCC online calculator. Carry out more detailed carbon audits (where possible) to monitor sources of emissions that need reducing, and to track ongoing progress.
- Commit to implement changes in operations to reduce carbon footprints by 50% over the next ten years.
- Reduce waste.
- Compensate emissions by donating to companies committed to systemic change.
- Recognise and work towards mitigating embedded climate injustice.
