EXCITING NEWS! Raby Castle is applying for the Green Tourism Award
The awards certification programme recognises the commitment of tourism businesses, actively working to become more sustainable.
Sustainability is a key focus throughout the Estate. The Rising scheme perfectly demonstrates this, from the reclaimed estate materials being reused and recycled throughout the development to the estate oak, which has been felled to provide beautifully crafted benches for visitors to use.
The environmental impact of the development has also been considered, and a ground source heat network has been installed, which will provide 60% of the annual heat demand and reduce the development’s carbon emissions by 40%. Read more about the Ground Source Heat Network HERE.
Estate produce will run through beautiful menus, and carefully curated products from local suppliers will line the shelves of the retail areas.
Join us on our eco-friendly journey as we strive to become a more sustainable tourism destination!
