Crown Estate

Volume 702: debated on Monday 16 June 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether the Crown Estate provides sustainable development, has measures to alleviate climate change and promotes new technologies in its property portfolios. [HL3964]

The Crown Estate attaches great importance to sustainable development across its portfolio. The Crown Estate believes that its stewardship role on its estates should leave a legacy for future generations and be an example to others. It aims to operate as a lean and enterprising organisation that uses resources efficiently; minimises emissions to land, air and water; curbs the production of waste and increases recycling; and conserves and enhances those parts of the estate rich in biodiversity and architectural and historical value.
