Environmental sustainability

Protecting the environment is a key part of our role on the UK Defence Training Estate

We look after 190,000 hectares of some of the most valuable habitats and landscapes in the UK including over 40,000 hectares of National Park land and 70,000 hectares of nature conservation sites.

Protecting the environment is a key part of our role on the UK Defence Training Estate. From sustainable land management and forestry, to energy reduction programmes such as our award winning Net-Zero Carbon Accommodation (NetCAP) programme; we are committed to environmental protection as we make the Estate a safe – and sustainable – place to train.

Learn more about some of environmental protection programmes by taking a look at our case studies below.
