In particular, our work with the Estate will focus on clean energy generation, waste-management and energy efficient solutions and we hope to play a constructive part in their transition towards a carbon positive business. The Estate is already actively exploring green initiatives such as transitioning its power supply to 100% renewable energy, the electrification of the Estate’s entire vehicle fleet and developing its visitor carbon offset programme. Our collective expertise in these areas can contribute to their efforts to preserve what is one of Britain's most prestigious, family run-estates.
Commitment to a Sustainable Future
At Foresight we share a vision of a smarter, sustainable future and this partnership is already offering staff members the opportunity to help contribute to the Estate’s rewilding efforts through its extensive tree-planting scheme, extending their passion for sustainability beyond the marketplace. Foresight Staff will be able to use their volunteering Charity days to join the Goodwood grounds team on private tree-planting days.
In October, Goodwood will host the inaugural Foresight Sustainability Summit, an annual gathering of global leaders and institutional investors that will explore geopolitical barriers to carbon neutrality and the possible solutions. The need for collective climate action is pivotal if we are to achieve 2050 climate targets and we hope to bring the role of businesses to the forefront of the debate.
This partnership will help us champion innovation in responsible investing and drive the conversation around strategies for sustainable change.
