Libraries and positive climate action: sustainable buildings

Part of the Libraries and positive climate action collection

The British Library is hosting a series of webinars focused on libraries and the climate crisis. The aim of the series is to bring together international library leaders to share their different responses to the climate emergency. The first session in this series, on 4 October 2023, focused on the role that libraries are playing in building climate action through community engagement.

The second session, on 21 November 2023, will focus on the work libraries across the world are doing to make their buildings sustainable and carbon neutral. This session will explore examples of best practice worldwide – from new buildings, retrofits of historic buildings to innovative ways to reduce energy and water usage. We will also touch on the issues of the broader sustainability of library design, operations and procurement.
