Sustainability at Hauser & Wirth


Sustainability in Action


Introducing Exhibition Climate Impact Reports


In line with the Paris Climate Agreement of the United Nations, we are reducing our carbon emissions by at least 50 percent by 2030. Since making our commitment, we have reduced our emissions by 9 percent and continue to drive actions to accelerate meeting our target. Reductions are happening by switching to renewable energy, transitioning to LED lighting, purchasing electric vehicles and tracking carbon emissions and waste associated with our air freight.

In 2021, we initiated our environmental sustainability actions, and our original commitments were to:
• Reduce our greenhouse gas emissions (energy and fuel) by a minimum of 50 percent by 2030
• Reduce our freight, business travel and exhibition construction emissions
• Sequester more carbon than our total footprint each year

For 2023 we are evolving our commitments to keep pace with industry guidance from organisations such as the Gallery Climate Coalition and Galleries Commit. Reduction remains our top priority.

Revised commitments are to:
• Reduce our greenhouse gas emissions by a minimum of 50 percent by 2030 in line with the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This includes reducing our freight, business travel and exhibition construction emissions
• Support Strategic Climate Funds, projects that preserve existing forests and positively impact communities backed up by climate justice initiatives
• Actively promote and provide a platform for industry collaboration

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.
