To achieve this, ARTIS collaborates with a range of parties including municipal and national authorities, academic institutions, partner businesses and the local community, to improve all facets of sustainability while keeping the environment liveable.
- Fossil-free by 2030 – ARTIS will phase out its use of fossil fuels for heating and transport, make efficient use of power generation, storage and green energy, and minimise carbon-powered transport by partners and visitors.
- By 2030, ARTIS will be free of unrecyclable waste flows (less than 5% landfill) – ARTIS is opting for materials with a low ecological footprint and composts all green waste.
- ARTIS will have halve its drinking water consumption by 2030 – ARTIS is making a positive contribution to a climate-adaptive Amsterdam and reduces its consumption of tap water by using rain and canal water for low-grade applications.
- ARTIS as a biodiversity hub, day and night – In 2022, ARTIS started taking light measurements and introducing darkness to make ARTIS the ideal location for biodiversity, even at night. ARTIS's goal is to be Europe's first Urban Night Sky location.
