As an art conservation lab, we are committed to promoting environmental sustainability through our conservation practices. We recognize that art conservation can have a significant impact on the environment, and we strive to adopt eco-friendly practices in all aspects of our work.
Here are some of the ways we are working to promote environmental sustainability:
- Use of Eco-Friendly Materials: We use non-toxic solvents and organic materials that are less harmful to the environment. For example, we use water-based cleaning solutions instead of harsh chemical solvents, and we use sustainably sourced and recycled materials for framing and display.
- Recycling and Waste Reduction: We have implemented waste reduction practices such as recycling and composting. We recycle paper, cardboard, plastics, and hazardous waste, and we compost organic waste to reduce our carbon footprint.
- Energy-Efficient Equipment: We use energy-efficient equipment such as LED lighting and low-power equipment to reduce energy consumption and lower our carbon footprint.
- Sustainable Transportation: We encourage our staff to use public transportation or bike to work to reduce their carbon footprint.
- Sustainable Sourcing: We source materials sustainably by choosing suppliers who have sustainable practices, such as using renewable energy sources or recycled materials.
By adopting these eco-friendly practices, we are not only reducing our environmental impact but also preserving art for future generations. We believe that conservation practices should not only protect art but also protect the environment.
We are committed to promoting environmental sustainability in all aspects of our work, and we encourage other art conservation labs to do the same. Together, we can make a positive impact on the environment and ensure that art is preserved for future generations to enjoy.
