Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales has developed a core of policies aimed at embedding sustainable development into its operations. In addition there are policies to promote equality and diversity, and sustainability in our cultural heritage.
The Welsh Assembly Governments Green Dragon standard focuses on the sustainability of an organisation. Thanks to the support of our staff, the museum as a whole has now obtained Level 3 of this standard.
Wales, almost alone among nations, adopted the principles of sustainable development as the underpinning principle of the Welsh Assembly Government. From this Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales has adopted a policy framework for action on sustainable development within the organisation.
Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales is committed to sustainable procurement. Sustainable procurement is often described as the purchase of goods or services in a way that achieves value for money on a whole life basis.
The adoption of an Energy Policy by Amgueddfa Cymru - National Museum Wales demonstrates the museum’s support for the Welsh Assembly Government and UK Government’s target for the reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
