Please join AIC’s Sustainability Committee and Icon’s Environmental Sustainability Network for our inaugural collaboration in honor of COP26 and in celebration of the world’s commitment to fighting climate change. In this free virtual event, committee members will be joined by conservation and collections professionals from around the world who will explain how they have altered their practices to be more sustainable. Our panelists will share their experiences of: 

  • working towards becoming carbon neutral while maintaining 20% RH
  • rethinking the products used during historic house maintenance
  • achieving certified B corp status at an independent paintings conservation studio
  • how our field can rethink our work and expand our focus to include sustainability as art preservation.
