Reducing our environmental footprint



Our ‘environmental footprint’

  • Energy

  • Water

  • Carbon

  • Materials, waste

  • Compliance

    • Water
    • Sewerage
    • Fuel & oil stores


Carbon stewardship

  • reduce our emissions (CO2 and methane)

  • increase our capture and storage of carbon – in land, biomass and structures

  • carbon stewardship – Wallington pilot

  • peatlands

  • soils

  • wood

  • Country house technologies…





Typical woodland carbon dynamics





Product displacement - spoons



Use less…!!

“We were looking to source the timber from NT High Peak estate, but were unable to obtain in time”…

  • “We were looking to source the timber from NT High Peak estate, but were unable to obtain in time”…

  •  all the wood used was FSC certified

  • Shingles were From CSSB Cedar Shake and Shingle Bureau Supplied by Rawnsley Woodland Products, Wadebridge Cornwall

  • Structural timbers and larch cladding provided by Arnold Lavers, Chesterfield; and Timber Specialists, Sheffield.



SUSTAINABLE USE OF WOOD

  • Wood products from reclaimed and/or recycled sources will be preferred to new wood products when appropriate.

  • All new wood and wood products to be used in NT operations/retailing must come from certified Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or equivalent sources.

  • NT estate-grown wood will be preferred to other sources (all NT woodlands are FSC certified).

  • NT wood energy schemes will be based primarily on properties which can provide their own wood (security of supply)

  • Locally grown FSC/equivalent certified wood will be preferred, to avoid transport impacts.



Use of hardwoods grown in the UK, i.e. indigenous species and long established species such as sweet chestnut and sycamore, will be promoted.

  • Use of hardwoods grown in the UK, i.e. indigenous species and long established species such as sweet chestnut and sycamore, will be promoted.

  • Use of durable softwoods grown in the UK will be promoted for construction projects.

  • Imported wood will only be used when there is no viable UK-grown alternative.

  • New wood supplied from rare or declining species or forests will not be used other than in the most exceptional circumstances e.g. restoration of rare joinery etc.



All wood products used by the NT must have been processed in such a way as to minimise energy use, pollution and waste.

  • All wood products used by the NT must have been processed in such a way as to minimise energy use, pollution and waste.

  • Wood products used by the NT must be capable of being re-used or recycled i.e. not have been treated with toxic/hazardous chemicals such as CCA (unless absolutely necessary), not glued or not nailed in ways that would prevent re-use.

  • Imaginative use of wood for solid and/or processed products will be promoted, as alternative to artificial/highly processed materials.



Next steps

  • Regional wood strategies – adaptation compliant

  • Stock maps (Plans of Ops!!)

  • NT Conservation Plans

  • Site sensitivities – +/- constraints = resource mapping

  • Out-turn forecasts – primary + by-products

  • Product displacement – procurement skills/info

  • Internal trading – within/between estates/regions

  • Energy strategies, case studies, trusted info

  • Skills & training – specs, management, fuel quality

  • Plant & equipment – technol innovation, maintenance

  • Contractors, farm tenants…

  • Approved plans, certification, monitoring, reporting

  • Green Dragon EMS…



  • OIL–off!
