Burghley goes green

Equestrian events going green!

At The Sustainable Horse HQ we are happy to hear of a few events that have a clear sustainability policy.

The world famous 4* eventing competition Burghley published below press release on their website:

Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials (LRBHT) endeavour to organise and deliver an event with the least amount of environmental impact as possible.

Working through every aspect of the event and our all year round office, we are developing systems and innovative solutions across key areas such as energy, transport, purchasing and waste.  We are working with our contractors and suppliers to reduce their impact as well as our own.

Equal attention and action is given to sustainability and environmental issues throughout the office as well as the planning stages, the build, the event itself, the breakdown and the debriefings each year.

LRBHT are fully committed to sustainability and environmental issues and is aiming long term to exceed best practice.

An Environmental/Sustainability Co-ordinator is nominated to focus on sustainability and environmental issues and develop innovative solutions.

Apart from the immediate benefit in ‘going green’ we hope that LRBHT’s focus on sustainable practices will impact the industry through our suppliers and contractors.

LRBHT are also part of ‘Investors in the Environment’ and have been awarded GREEN stamp of approval at Silver level.
