Sustainability

We prioritise our environmental responsibilities and strive to incorporate sustainable principles in our business.

Exeter Racecourse is set in forest land overlooking beautiful Devon countryside where we prioritise our environmental responsibilities and strive to incorporate sustainable principles in our business.

The Jockey Club has a “Green Champion” at each of the 14 racecourses who works with the group’s Sustainability Executive to ensure that we implement steps to reduce our impact on the environment without affecting the quality of the customer experience.

The sustainability strategy is constantly evolving and we have a mixture of short and longer term objectives to help achieve our aims.  Some of the objectives that we have already completed at Exeter include:

  • A 10% reduction in electricity consumption
  • Food waste now goes to anaerobic digestion rather than landfill
  • An increase in the proportion of waste that is recycled
  • All of our race cards are printed on recycled paper
  • Incorporating environmental credentials in our procurement decisions
  • The Catering team source products locally where possible

We are always looking for ideas to reduce the impact of Exeter Racecourse on the local and wider environment. 

If you have any suggestions, we would be delighted to hear from you at environment@thejockeyclub.co.uk
