Located at the edge of a nature conservation area amidst a historical park, the Fondation Beyeler lies embedded in exceptional natural surroundings. The foundation’s philosophy centres on the harmonious interplay of art, architecture and nature.
The Fondation Beyeler is committed to conducting its activities in a sustainable manner and therefore endeavours to handle natural resources with care and to reduce its ecological footprint by means of effective improvements.
In formulating and implementing its sustainability strategy, it is led by the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and focuses more specifically on areas in which it can make a contribution by taking targeted and concrete action:
- CO2 emissions
- Energy consumption
- Material consumption and waste
- Procurement and infrastructure
The Fondation Beyeler stands at the beginning of an ongoing process and views itself as a «learning organisation»—continuously evolving, regularly reviewing and where necessary adjusting its operations in order to find suitable and effective pathways to environmentally sound action.
