Shaping a greener future

We aim to reduce our impact on the environment, stimulate the local economy and support local communities through all our activities.

By 2025 we aim to reach carbon negative status by; having 50% of our visitors arrive in a carbon friendly way, generating double the energy we consume and to reduce the carbon footprint of our existing buildings by 25% ...

“As a major legacy land-owner, a multi-million pound business and a world-renowned visitor attraction we have both a significant responsibility to help, and an opportunity to make a real difference."
