The National Gallery prioritises the responsible use of energy in running its site and conducting its activities
Over the years the National Gallery has taken a number of measures to reduce energy consumption and the release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The Gallery recently participated in the central government carbon management programme, which assisted in meeting carbon reduction goals over the next 10 years.
Working with the Carbon Trust, the Gallery established a cross-departmental team that brought forward ideas on carbon reduction from across the museum. These ideas are described in the National Gallery’s Carbon Management Plan, which is currently being updated for 2024/25.
