Hauser & Wirth exists to cultivate a better future for our artists. That means doing all we can to protect the future of the environment, our communities, and the art industry.


As one of the few galleries that operates beyond city centers, we have a long-standing history of restoration, localism, and conservation. We have embarked on a gallery-wide environmental sustainability plan to reduce emissions by 50% before 2030, carbon budgets for each exhibition and fair to improve transparency, and a program of carbon donations.

Carbon Donations

Where we cannot reduce emissions, we are building a program of carbon offsets, sequestering, and donations.

We have a longstanding history of partnerships across biodiversity, reforestation and food security.


For almost three decades we have gone beyond traditional philanthropy, operating long-term programs and partnerships focused on schools and communities, higher education, and careers in the arts. These partnerships are directed by individual gallery locations, shaped by the local community and environment in which they operate, allowing our galleries to act as catalysts for change on a local level.

Our support for Higher Education is built on two of our core values; promoting scholarship and widening access to careers in the arts.
