At Chatsworth we are committed to supporting staff and visitors in adopting lower impact transportation modes as there is no doubt this is one of our major environmental impacts. In 2013 it was estimated that Chatsworth contributed nearly 8513 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent in emissions from visitor travel, three times the emission from our owned and operated property.
What have we done so far?
- Partnered with TM Travel to improve bus routes into Chatsworth. Visitors now receive a £2 discount on house and garden admissions for traveling via bus
- Operated an annual Ride2Work scheme for employees
- Investigate Electric Vehicle charging points for both staff and visitor vehicles
- Continue our involvement with the Peak District National Park Travel Summit
