At the Fundació Joan Miró we are fully aware of how important it is to protect our environment. This awareness is what motivated us to make a commitment to continuous improvement aimed at achieving sustainable development.
As part of this new venture, we have introduced an Environmental Management System (EMS) that provides us with the necessary tools for performing an environmental evaluation that will warrant continuous improvement of the processes resulting from the museum’s everyday activities. It requires commitment and motivation from each and every one of the people involved in our organization −the Foundation engages its staff, suppliers, and outsourced service providers, as well as our museum visitors/ users, in this effort.
The EMS enables us to assess the environmental impacts associated with our activity. Awareness of these impacts leads to a continuous improvement process in our everyday work. Our goal is to minimize these impacts and introduce self-control behaviors that make it possible to streamline the entire system’s structure in order to guarantee its efficiency.
