Andrew Kreps Gallery – Through carbon footprint analysis created a program to maintain a green office and gallery culture with emphasis on elements that are specific to the retail art business: shipping and packaging of art work and the recycling and waste associated with it for collectors as well as art fairs, construction materials and refuse due to installations, national and international travel, and daily energy use. Strategic recommendations for maintaining sustainable solutions were made with an eye towards growth.
