The Vasa Museum as a part of The Swedish National Maritime Museums is one of the first museums in Scandinavia to receive environmental certification according to ISO 14001.

We hope to create environmental improvements in the museums' operations and sustainable eco-planning so that we continually reduce our negative effect on the environment.

The Swedish National Maritime Museums' environmental policy

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, in preservation work and in use of the collections such as operating the museum vessels.
  • Take all opportunities to increase environmental awareness among our visitors and co-workers, keep employees regularly informed about environmental issues and our eco-friendly activities and policies.
  • Demand eco-friendly operations when purchasing goods and services.
