Konferenz Nationaler Kultureinrichtungen

Cooperation for the Climate

Thanks to funding provided by the German Federal Commissioner for Culture and Media (BKM), a new joint project is set to calculate the carbon footprints of eight member institutions of the Conference of National Cultural Institutions (KNK). The aim is to assess the energy and resource consumption and mobility emissions of these cultural institutions and use this information as a basis for crafting and implementing measures to effectively reduce these.
The carbon footprinting project will be conducted at the Fürst-Pückler-Park Bad Muskau Foundation, the GRASSI museums in Leipzig, the Dessau-Wörlitz Cultural Foundation, the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation, the Luther Memorials Foundation in Saxony-Anhalt, the Stiftung Schloss Friedenstein Gotha, the Wartburg Castle Foundation in Eisenach and the Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation Berlin-Brandenburg (SPSG). The SPSG has assumed responsibility for overseeing the project.
