Climate Emergency and Sustainability Statement

Climate change and environmental sustainability are some of the greatest challenges facing humanity today. The RISD Museum is committed to reducing our environmental impact, finding ethical, economic and environmental/sustainable business partnerships, creating teaching and learning opportunities, and enacting best practices and policies around environmental sustainability and climate justice. We will serve as good stewards of what is now called College Hill, part of the ancestral homelands of the Narragansett Indian Tribe, and build our relationships with the Narragansett Indian Tribe and Indigenous communities. Embracing our role as an educational and social institution, we are weaving this work into everything that we do, from programming and exhibitions to building facilities and operations.
