By being certified within the Eco-Lighthouse head office model. We will have the opportunity to certify our entire business. For Museum Nord, this is an important step in achieving our strategic sustainability goals.

FOCUS ON Sustainability and the environment

Sustainability and the environment have always been a big focus here at Museum Nord and it is a great pleasure to finally get the physical proof of this work. A lot of work has been done in this area and Museum Nord will continue to focus on this, both in the museums and in our project work.

Lofoten is a place of great importance both locally and nationally, and it is important to create good workplaces with a good working environment and help protect and preserve our nature, but also the planet.

This is a step in the right direction for the organisation and the focus on this will be even greater in the new strategy.
