Lowering our carbon footprint
Holkham is formed of many businesses operating in different ways. One thing that brings each business together is our focus on lowering our carbon footprint. Regular discussions and decisions take place, each looking at how we can be kinder to our planet.
We consider ways to prompt changes in behaviour and have already taken steps to reduce our consumption of energy in particular including using automatic lighting and LED bulbs and replacing electronic equipment such as fridges in our cafés with the most energy efficient models. We also switch off monitors when we are not in the office.
We continue to ensure that all our electricity comes from a renewable source and generate it through solar panels where possible.
