Plans and policies

The National Galleries of Scotland's key plans, policies and procurement information are as follows.

Environmental Response Plan

Art has the universal power to inspire us and all of our stakeholders in responding to the collective challenge we face. 

A new Environmental Response Plan has been developed through close consultation with colleagues from across our organisation. It recognises that a significant amount of work has already been achieved, and much of it behind the scenes.

Procurement at the Galleries


National Galleries Scotland is committed to eliminating discrimination, advancing equality of opportunity and fostering good relations to ensure everyone has access to the national collection of art, and to support a diverse workforce.

The National Galleries of Scotland will not tolerate racist language, hate speech or abusive behaviours in our galleries or online spaces. Those who violate this policy will be refused admission or asked to leave. 

We will treat all inappropriate use of social media, such as trolling, very seriously. The National Galleries of Scotland will not engage with trolls and will take action to block and remove any person or account that seeks to cause upset or incite hate on any of our social media channels.
