Creating a Sustainable Museum

The Sustainability web pages are currently being updated.

We aim to develop sustainable practice in the operation of our seven museums and promote sustainable living through our events and learning programs.

Conserving the Nation's treasures and opening our doors to 1.67 million visitors a year uses a lot of energy. During the last five years we have made big steps to reduce our carbon footprint through financial investment and staff dedication.

Today, all seven of our museum sites have received Phase 3 of the BS 8555 Seren Environmental Standard in recognition of our effective environmental management. We also work closely with the Carbon Trust and have implemented their recommendations following a series of energy assessments. Future initiatives include Low Carbon Technology, participating in the Government’s Carbon Reduction Commitment and Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015.
