Camden Art Centre has an excellent track record on reducing carbon emissions, and increasing our environmental sustainability remains a key organisational goal. As a societal issue, and one that is important to the staff, artists and communities we work with, addressing the climate emergency is important to our overall mission, ensuring our work remains relevant. We aim to be a beacon of good practice in reducing our carbon emissions, to limit our pollution and waste, save energy and practise recycling. All visitors and staff should feel able to engage with our environmental programme, in the same way they do with our exhibition and learning programmes, and with just as much integrity.
We have an internal ‘Green Team’ with different department representatives who meet regularly to move forwards on agreed actions. We participate in Julie’s Bicycle ‘Creative Green’ environmental certification scheme specifically designed for the creative sector, and were winner of ‘Best Museum and Art Gallery’ in the Creative Green Awards 2017. We were also awarded the ‘Carbon Champion’ level of certification from Camden Climate Change Alliance for 2021. We have more recently become an Active Member of the Gallery Climate Coalition focusing on what actions we can take, as well as participating in dialogue through the Plus Tate network.
We welcome all input from visitors and invite members of the public to engage in our policy. Should you have any suggestions or questions regarding our environmental focus at Camden Art Centre, please contact [email protected].
