Written by sustainability expert Rachel Madan – who as the Director of Greener Museums has worked with many US and UK organizations including Tate, the (UK Government’s) Department of Culture Media & Sport, National Museums Liverpool and the National Library of Scotland – Sustainable Museums will provide a system which enables museum professionals to start making changes that are both transformational and lasting. Its approach aims to help create museums which are resilient, confident and secure in their approach to sustainability.

  • How your museum’s sustainability strategy was developed.
  • How your museum has set and achieved targets and milestones related to sustainability.
  • How your museum has created policies and plans to support your efforts to improve sustainability.
  • How your museum effectively communicates internally on sustainability.
  • How your museum effectively communicates externally on sustainability.
  • Other successful and innovative initiatives in the field of sustainability.
