Targets & Commitments

Joining the Global Decarbonization Movement:

At Artmonad, we’re committed to being active participants in the global effort to combat climate change. Our mission is simple yet profound: to contribute to the decarbonization of our planet by promoting effective actions within the art world.

Advantages of 3D Virtual Art Galleries:

By harnessing the power of 3D virtual technology, we offer a sustainable alternative to traditional art galleries. Here’s how:

  • Eliminating Transportation Emissions: With virtual galleries, there’s no need for collectors or artworks to travel. By eliminating the carbon emissions associated with transportation, we reduce our environmental footprint and contribute to cleaner air and a healthier planet.
  • Reducing Energy Consumption: Unlike physical galleries that require heating, air conditioning, and extensive lighting, virtual galleries operate with minimal energy consumption. By avoiding the need for HVAC systems and reducing reliance on artificial lighting, we lower energy bills and decrease carbon emissions associated with electricity generation.
  • Minimizing Resource Use: Virtual galleries significantly reduce the need for physical materials, such as building materials for gallery construction and packaging materials for artwork transportation. By minimizing resource use, we conserve natural resources and reduce waste, further mitigating our impact on the environment.

Initiating Systemic Change:

But our ambition doesn’t stop there. We’re on a mission to initiate systemic change within the art sector itself. By challenging traditional norms and advocating for sustainability, we strive to foster a culture of environmental awareness and responsibility throughout the industry.

Join Us in Driving Change:

We invite you to join us in our journey towards a more sustainable future for the art world and beyond. Together, let’s create a cleaner, greener planet for generations to come.

Gallery Climate Coalition (GCC) was founded in 2020 by a group of gallerists and professionals working in the commercial arts sector as an attempt to develop a meaningful and industry-specific response to the growing climate crisis. The goal of GCC is to facilitate a greener, more sustainable art world and to reduce the sector’s carbon footprint by at least 50% by 2030 in line with the Paris Agreement. This will be achieved by providing members with industry-specific guidelines and practical tools including a carbon calculator to measure emissions.
