Sustainable Stewardship

Nestled in the heart of rural West Sussex, the Goodwood Estate spans 11,000 acres, and has a great responsibility to protect, maintain and enhance its distinctive character and landscape. Ensuring that future generations can cherish Goodwood as we all do today. From solar panels and biomass boilers to nature recovery and biodiversity projects, there are a number of initiatives underway, including the introduction of 150,000 new trees since 2018. The estate is constantly evolving and continues to meet the challenges of climate change with creativity and innovation.

Sustainability Report

We are delighted to present the annual Goodwood Sustainability Report for 2023. The report highlights our sustainable accomplishments over the past year and addressees the challenges we've faced in striving to become as sustainable as we possibly can. Read the report here.
03

Events

Goodwood’s sustainability strategy covers all aspects of the estate and its activities and the motorsport and horseracing events have held ISO 20121 certification for over 10 years, demonstrating our commitment to sustainable event management. From farming with a self-sustaining and certified organic system and responsible forestry focused on the continuous cover via natural regeneration, to our events, which of course provide a more substantial challenge in terms of balancing environmental impact with the benefits to the local community, charities and a global audience. Across all of these activities, our strategy is focused on our six key priorities of natural capital, carbon, water, business, resources and social impact. We remain alert and responsive to changing conditions and expectations. Further initiatives are planned to join those already in progress and move us towards our goal of becoming a carbon neutral estate.
04

Renewables

Goodwood switched to a 100% renewable energy supplier in 2020 and have since then been focussed on increasing our own renewable energy generation. This year we will be embedding sustainable racing fuels within our motorsport events and across the estate, including recycled cooking oil and solar hybrid power. We are also working on improving the water efficiency infrastructure across all of our properties, and have introduced water refill stations and reusable cups at our events. The use of electric vehicles, car charging points have been integral to our journey towards carbon neutrality.

We are keenly aware of the changing climatic conditions, and therefore how imperative it is that we work towards becoming a sustainable, carbon positive estate.

The Duke of Richmond and Gordon, CBE DL
