Tread Lightly, Stamp Out Waste

Stamping out waste is on everyone’s agenda, and it’s no different at Holkham. We are already achieving great things with our bio digester, 100% compositable waste at The Lookout and significant reductions in plastic in our cafes and gift shop. However, we can and will do much more. We are committed to preserving and not destroying resources, and in doing so will help to clean-up our seas, beaches, countryside and air quality. We strive to live by the following principles: reducing, re-using and recycling to minimise waste, and rethinking our behaviours, including refusing unsustainable practices.

GOAL - We will reduce the amount of non-recycled waste we generate by 10% each year for the next 10 years.

To achieve this, we will:

Minimise our waste

Through increased recycling, composting and new ways of working, we will reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill.

Our plastic pledge

We will phase out single-use plastics in our in-house food and beverage businesses. We will also influence our supply chain including catering concessions and in house purchasing.
