SERM Project: Environmental Plans

If your museum does not yet have an Environmental Plan or Policy, or it could do with an update, then we can help. SHARE is working with Lorraine Finch from LFCP to offer five museums training and support in writing or significantly updating their environmental plans. The plans will include a detailed Carbon Reduction Plan, helping your museum to further progress towards net carbon zero.

An up-to-date environmental plan demonstrates your museum’s commitment to reducing its environmental impact – increasingly important to donors, funders, and audiences. It assesses your current situation and provides you with a framework of actions to achieve your environmental aims.

Two online training sessions will cover the following:

Session 1: Tuesday 26 March 10.00 – 12.00: What is an environmental plan? Examples from museums and other sectors. What to include within an environmental plan? Carbon emissions – what they are and how to measure?

Session 2: Thursday 18 April 10.00 – 12.00: Gathering and reviewing information and data for an environmental plan. Reporting on targets and progress. Workshop on creating and reviewing an environmental action plan.

Following the sessions museums will be receive 1:1 support (online or in-person) from Lorraine to facilitate data collection and writing their plans.

The five spaces are on a first come, first served basis (deadline 21 March 2024).
