Chatsworth Estate handed top honour
The Chatsworth Estate has been awarded the Peak District Environmental Quality Mark by the Peak District National Park for its sustainable ways of working.
The PDEQM is presented to businesses that support the local economy, protect and enhance the local environment, invest in people and communities, and celebrate what’s special about the Peak District. The independent awards panel, which judges applications according to strict criteria, praised the Devonshire Group, which operates the Chatsworth Estate, for its approach to sustainable land management, transport for visitors and employees and the introduction and use of renewables. PDEQM director Faith Johnson said: “It is exciting to have such a prominent and diverse business on board.”
