ENERGY, CARBON REDUCTION AND SUSTAINABILITY
At Blair Estate we put protection of the environment at the core of our business and it is deeply embedded into the culture of our approach.
In addition to our general duty of care, Blair Estate will ensure, so far as it is reasonably practicable to pursue sustainable operational practice and to choose like-minded suppliers and contractors where possible.
We recognise that it is our responsibility to ensure environmental good practice in relation to our operations and dealings in the wider community and wherever possible we use locally sourced food and produce, products, materials and services. We are members of the Ayrshire Food Network.
We grow and harvest sustainable firewood used to supplement the regular heating at Blair House and ensure we practice positive waste management in reducing our consumption of resources, reusing materials wherever possible, recycling where we are able to and minimising the amounts of waste required to be sent to landfill.
We use energy saving light bulbs thoroughout the property.
