Improving the sustainability of historic buildings

A network of custodians of historic properties on rural estates from across the UK came together in person for the first time at the Eaton Estate in September 2022 to share knowledge on their approaches to improving the sustainability of their buildings, amidst greater energy efficiency requirements and meeting their net zero carbon aspirations.

The event, which was led by the National Trust and hosted by Grosvenor, was attended by about 30 delegates from a wide range of organisations engaged in the stewardship of historic properties, including Historic England, the Country Land and Business Association, Savills and a number of private estates.

The focus of the day was to help share examples of ongoing projects on specific properties as well as across their portfolios, develop opportunities for future working and to formalise the membership and purpose of the group.
