The gallery at Oriel y Parc is a partnership between Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority.

What first attracted you to Green Key?

It is the leading standard for excellence in the field of environmental responsibility and aligns perfectly with our organisational values and goals.


Tell us about any changes that you have made to meet the Green Key criteria?

Our building is relatively new and already benefited from a lot of ‘green’ infrastructure, however Green Key has made us think more about the type of everyday products we use as well as how we can involve our team more in making ‘greener’ decisions about how we run and operate.


What do you consider to be the benefits of having become Green Key accredited?

As a National Park visitor centre, it is important to us to ensure we act as a role model and try to lead the way in terms of environmental responsibility, Green Key is a great way to show our commitment to this.


How do you incorporate the education element of the award into your business?

Our Green Key certificate is displayed; we also ensure a press release is sent out to all press contacts when we successfully receive accreditation as well as the accreditation being listed on our website.


What have you found the most challenging aspect of the award?

As our building is already extremely eco-friendly, we have found it difficult to find feasible ways to improve upon this each year.
