These emissions for electricity, shipping and travel cover 14 Hauser & Wirth global locations. These include galleries in the US, UK, Switzerland, Spain and Hong Kong.
Environmental Resources Management (ERM) carried out carbon footprint reports for scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions for Hauser & Wirth for 2019 and our energy use as noted in the GCC calculator has been verified independently.
Hauser & Wirth have chosen to commit to disclose scope 1 and 2 (energy and fuel) Science Based Target (SBTi) from a baseline year of 2019 at 1,620 tCO2e. The target will be focused on reducing our absolute emissions to align with a 1.5-degree reduction pathway, as set out in the Paris Agreement and IPCC Special Report. Please read Cliodhna Murphy's research for galleries on setting a Science Based Target here. (see attached)
In this report, Hauser & Wirth's scope 3 emissions include travel and shipping. In 2021, we are developing a program to understand our scope 3 emissions through carbon calculations and subsequent budgets for all exhibitions and fairs. A series of scope 3 workshops with staff has also taken place to identify where procurement can influence our supply chain.
