Abstract

By using carbon footprints, museum staff can manage the impact of their loan programs on climate change. To measure the environmental impact of loan activities, a new carbon footprinting methodology has been developed. The methodology includes an Environmental Impact of Loans performance indicator, encouraging museums to set and achieve efficiency targets for loan activities. The methodology was developed using data from the Art Department of Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales. Based on this experience, evidence-based recommendations have been formulated to help museums reduce their impact on global warming.
