Environmental Sustainability Policy

Goal

To support the environment by becoming a green museum that demonstrates a reduced environmental impact, as well as increased public awareness of Museum of Glass efforts.

Statement of Intent

Museum of Glass strives to be a responsible steward of our fiscal, social, and environmental resources.  While the Museum’s carbon footprint is sizable due to the nature of glassblowing and the size of the facility, there are and will continue to be both small and large opportunities to integrate principles of sustainability.  This policy is a commitment to continuously improve the environmental management of the Museum’s facilities and core activities.  Specific targets for improvement will be determined on an ongoing basis, as approved by Museum administration.  

Cornerstone Policy Practices

  • Continuous evaluation, documentation, and communication on issues and projects related to sustainability by the established Green Team;
  • A focus on energy and water conservation;
  • Resource consumption that is minimal and sustainably sourced, wherever feasible;
  • Grounds maintenance that provides minimal impact on the local environment;
  • Facilities improvements that reduce waste, increase indoor air quality, and minimize resource consumption;
  • Public programming and outreach, which shares our sustainability efforts and supports others in theirs; and,
  • Strategic collaboration in the community, such as membership in the Environmental Business Alliance, Tacoma - Pierce County.
