Preserving Cultural and Historic Treasures, and Our Environment

Written by 
Wendy Jessup and Associates, Inc. (WJ&A) is a woman-owned small business that provides preventive conservation, collections management consulting and planning services to museums and other stewards of cultural and historic property. WJ&A projects include developing preventive conservation policies, collections management and environmental improvement programs. As many WJ&A clients are housed in historic structures and have mixed collections, WJ&A works in collaboration with the architectural community to facilitate the preservation of collections in their design of new or renovated museum facilities. Wendy established WJ&A in 1987, following her career at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the Smithsonian Institution. Wendy has over thirty years of experience in the museum field. She understands the value of conservation, both of cultural and historic properties and of our global environment. In order to counter-balance the necessary travel and operations emissions from her conservation business, Wendy has chosen to partner with Carbonfund.org by contributing to our carbon reduction projects. “As a conservator of the world's cultural heritage, I am committed to incorporating sustainability into all aspects of my practice to help preserve our natural world. Since we must travel for our work, offsetting our carbon footprint is an essential component to our sustainability program.” We’re proud to have Wendy Jessup and Associates as a Carbonfund.org partner, and we applaud her for including environmental stewardship in her efforts to preserve the past for the benefit of the future.
