Conserving the past, reducing your footprint

Conserving the past, reducing your footprint

Without question, one of the humanity’s biggest challenges today, is protecting our planet and helping to keep it healthy for generations to come. Climate change is a very real threat. Make no mistake about it, our climate is changing, and so too is our weather. Summers are becoming hotter, winters colder, and weather is becoming wilder. This is why companies are pledging to do their part to reduce their carbon footprint. Natural resources are running low, and space is becoming scarce for businesses large and small. This is why demand for Bruynzeel archive shelving systems and mobile archive shelving, is greater than ever. These archive shelving systems maximise floor space, helping businesses to reduce storage space by as much as 75%. Museums for example, are benefitting hugely as less space used for storage means more space for their displays. This in turn means energy usage will fall, helping museums, such as those specialising in natural history, to reduce their carbon footprint and keep energy costs low in the process.
