Sustainability

We are all well aware that we are facing a climate and ecological emergency, and most of us are aware of the need to do our bit. Herein lies the crux of the issue. We know we need to work more sustainably, we want to do so but we don’t always know how to. LFCP can help you and your museum or archive to meet your sustainability goals .
