The Swedish Maritime and Transport Museums, SMTM, are the first museums in Scandinavia to receive environmental certification according to ISO 14001.

SMTM has an environmental management system that integrates environmental considerations into the authority's operations so that the direct and indirect environmental impact of the operations is taken into account in a systematic way. The environmental management system operates in accordance with current legislation and ISO 14001:2015.

All parts of SMTM and all employees are affected and covered by the environmental management system, and all employees have responsibility for working with continuous improvements.

SMTM has a sustainability policy that includes social, environmental and financial sustainability. The sustainability policy helps SMTM make decisions that contribute to the Global Goals and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the national environmental quality goals. It also supports the work to achieve SMTM's vision. Annually, multi-year sustainability goals are also developed.

Sustainability goals

SMTM's multi-year goals for sustainable development are based on three of the Global Goals and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Six external and internal promises and a number of sub-goals have been linked to these.

First goal

The first goal is #13 which is to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts. SMTM must do this by reducing energy consumption and phasing out fossil fuels by 2030 at the latest.

Second goal

The second goal is #12 which is to ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns. SMTM must do this by having a clear life cycle perspective in procurement and purchases; have an inspiring external and internal communication; have responsible chemical handling and contribute to circular material flows.

Third goal

The third goal is #11 which is to make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable. SMTM must contribute to this, among other things by using the movable cultural heritage.

Cooperation for sustainability

SMTM collaborate to create attractive and sustainable visitor destinations, including as an active member of the Royal Djurgården Society (KDI).

KDI collects the attractions on Djurgården. Museums, art galleries, entertainment establishments, restaurants, service and transport companies collaborate, develop and strengthen Djurgården as a visitor destination.

KDI was one of the first two urban destinations to be awarded the international sustainability award Green Destination Platinum Award in 2022 and in 2023 received first prize in the Green Destinations Story Award at the ITB fair in Berlin among 100 selected and committed destinations in the world.
