National Maritime Museums are the first museums in Scandinavia to receive environmental certification according to ISO 14001.

We hope to create environmental improvements in the agency’s operations and sustainable eco-planning so that we continuously reduce our negative effect on the environment.

Based on regulations and other demands, our environmental policy is to:

  • Reduce our negative effect in energy consumption, travel and transport, operations and maintenance; similarly with waste disposal, use of chemicals, and during preservation and use of the collections such as the museum vessels.
  • Take all opportunities to increase environmental awareness among our visitors and co-workers, keep employees constantly informed about environmental issues and our eco-friendly activities and policies.
