Sustainable Stewardship

Sustainability is one of the Duchy of Cornwall’s core strategic objectives –  a golden thread that runs through all decision making. In accordance with the ethos of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, the Duchy of Cornwall is managed in in a way that not only protects but also enhances the natural environment and the communities that live within it. 

We are of course not on this journey alone. Our tenants’ businesses and livelihoods are interwoven with that of the Duchy and we are mindful that we are on this journey together.

 

Here we explore a number of initiatives which demonstrate our commitment to a sustainable future.
