On Tuesday 5 July, The Goodwood Hotel beat competition from finalists including Fallow, a restaurant in London, Heckfield Place in Hampshire, Levy UK & Ireland, Eurest food services and the University of Sheffield to be named most sustainable business in the Catey Awards.

One of judges described Goodwood’s win as “a truly inspiring submission.”

“A company that is quietly going about decarbonising their business in a very thorough and fulsome way,” she added.

Some of the new sustainability measures introduced by Goodwood include investment in a biomass waste-to-energy facility to provide heat and power to the hotel, which was installed during the pandemic. The biomass is fuelled by 3,500 tonnes of straw from Festival of Speed, 2,600 tonnes of woodchip from Goodwood’s forestry team and 1,000 tonnes of waste wood from across the estate.

With a sustainability strategy that covers all aspects of the estate and its activities – from farming with a self-sustaining and certified organic system, to tree planting and rewilding – Goodwood is leading the way in improving their eco-credentials.
