Sustainability at Hauser & Wirth


Sustainability in Action


Introducing Exhibition Climate Impact Reports


Hauser & Wirth is committed to doing all we can to protect the future of the environment and our communities. Therefore, our vision is to build sustainable practices into everything we do.

We are actively working to be a zero carbon organisation and are accelerating our actions to cultivate a more sustainable future for our artists and networks. The next nine years are crucial in addressing our impacts on climate change.

Our commitments are to:

  • Reduce our absolute greenhouse gas emissions (energy and fuel) by a minimum of 50 percent by 2030
  • Sequester more carbon than our total footprint each year
  • Reduce our freight, business travel and exhibition construction emissions.

Our Global Head of Environmental Sustainability, Cliodhna Murphy, oversees the implementation of the gallery’s measures to achieve these reduction targets & drives the urgent actions to decarbonize and minimise waste in our daily operations and practices.


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.

Strategic Climate Funds

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.

Art Careers

A career in the arts should be an option for everyone which is why we are investing in more entry-level opportunities and diversity partnerships.

Higher Education

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

Schools & Community

Access to schools and community groups has always been central to how we shape gallery programming, allowing the spaces and exhibitions to become…


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.


The Hauser & Wirth Institute is an independent non-profit 501(c)(3) private operating foundation dedicated to supporting art historical scholarship.

Museum Support
