Brief

​The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) has committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2035. This includes the impacts from all building design, construction and operational activities. To help the spatial and 2D designers, and project management team achieve this goal they asked Elina to share her knowledge through a series of sustainability training sessions on Net Zero carbon, science-based targets, designing with embodied carbon budgets, and circular design approaches.

Their team was upskilled in the topics of Net Zero design and circularity, and as part of the sessions investigated real-life challenges and opportunities to put knowledge into practice and support the new direction.

To find out more about what the V&A team was learning and where they are heading, take a look at the V&A blog post that is packed with knowledge and insights.

“Elina’s training expanded our approach, from design strategies to material analysis. We now know the crucial questions to ask and how to access material data for our temporary projects, which typically have short lifespans. We’re working on a resource with Matter of Stuff to support our specific needs and inform our wider thinking. With this knowledge, we’re moving toward incorporating embodied carbon targets and systemic changes in our temporary projects.”
