As one of the few galleries that operates beyond city centers, we have a long-standing history of restoration and conservation. Our gallery-wide environmental sustainability plan will reduce emissions by at least 50 per cent before 2030. This will take place through decarbonised energy capital investment projects and carbon budgets for each exhibition and fair to improve transparency. Every year the gallery commits to carbon removal solutions for its remaining footprint. To embed sustainability at the heart of our activities, we are supporting our global team with training in carbon literacy. Our gallery action plans enable everyone to actively contribute to our environmental mission.
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.
We have a responsibility as custodians of artists’ legacies to preserve access to the arts for the next generation. That is why we have a comprehensive program of funding arts scholarship and museum support. Similarly, we are uniquely positioned as a gallery to leverage the power of art fundraising platforms for the causes most meaningful to our artists and communities.
