The Scottish Crannog Centre are the winners of the Scottish Excellence Sustainable Business Award!
The Scottish Crannog Centre aims to be Scotland’s most sustainable museum. They are delivering on this vision by embedding a sustainable ecology: to be a Place that Belongs in and cares for its Environment, a Trusted Partner that individuals and organisations want to work alongside, a Special Place people want to visit and support, a Place of Choice to work and Grow.
This way of work is inspired by the lives of the original Crannog dwellers 2,500 years ago and their relationship to the environment around them. The Scottish Crannog Centre are growing the skills, resources and people to sustain us in the future, with the Iron Age Village built from materials sourced from within travelling distance of the original Crannog: locally sourced timber, reed, stone, turf, which means they need different skills, different abilities and a diverse team to maximise the social and economic impact of our work.
The Scottish Excellence Awards celebrate the leading people, products, services and organisations that are setting new benchmarks in quality and creativity. The Scottish Crannog Centre received the Scottish Excellence Sustainable Business Award seeks as they have excelled in the reduction of their environmental impact through the implementation of a range of sustainable business policies and practices over the past 12 months.
