The Estate produces its own energy with hydro, geothermal, solar and wind turbine projects. The riverside corridors running alongside the estate's fields are part of the Welsh government's Tir Gofal and Glastir agri-environmental schemes. Rhug has nearly nine kilometers of riverside, which is fenced off to protect the water and encourage wildlife habitats.
In 2016 Rhug Estate won a Footprint Award for the 'Sustainable Use of Natural Resources' through our renewable heat and power generation.
We also support the alternative fuel movement by playing host to PodPoint electric car charging facilities.
We truly believe in reducing our carbon footprint and giving back to our community. You can read all about our sustainability projects here.
