Our commitment to sustainability
Our commitment to the environment is driven and supported by staff at all levels across the organization.
We strive to incorporate sustainability into our decision-making, with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of our operations and increasing our ability to adapt to our changing world. The Museum sustains an extensive water conservation program, manages a robust recycling and waste management program, and incorporates conservation principles into our exhibit design. We are proud of earning Green Plus Certification from the Institute of Sustainable Development and being recognized by the Green Travel Initiative in their highest-level sustainable business rating.
Our sustainability mission includes the following objectives:
- Improve how the Museum does business through policy development and staff education to make it easier to make sustainable choices.
- Demonstrate principles of sustainability for visitors through our built environment to encourage waste reduction and conservation.
- Provide educational opportunities for visitors to learn about sustainability through exhibits, signage, and special events.
