The Museum of the University of St Andrews, more commonly referred to as “MUSA”, recently received a visit from the Green Tourism Award assessors. We’ve been waiting with baited breath since July to hear the result, and can now proudly announce that they’ve been awarded a GOLD!
This is a fantastic achievement, and highlights the University’s commitment to environmental excellence and sustainability in practice. With a whole host of eco-credentials, including solar panels, a fantastic selection of green community outreach events, and a ground source heat pump (more on these in the next blog post!) it’s great to see these efforts being recognised for their impacts on sustainable tourism in St Andrews.
MUSA joins three halls of residence which also hold a Gold Green Tourism Award: Macintosh Hall, Agnes Blackadder Hall, and David Russell & Fife Park Apartments. The Environment Team was very excited to receive the news of yet another Gold Award, and hope this will encourage other local tourist attractions to become certified!
Look out for our next post which will showcase MUSA’s energy saving measures!
