Our environmental responsibilities

Nottingham is always striving to be more sustainable

Nottingham Racecourse is set in the beautiful surroundings of Colwick Park 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 Nottingham include:

  • A group wide decrease in annual energy consumption, both in electricity and gas
  • Installation of Electric Vehicle Charge Points in the car park outside the main entrance
  • The proportion of waste recycled is increasing and Nottingham have achieved the highest percentage in the group
  • All of our race cards are printed on recycled paper
  • Incorporating environmental credentials in our procurement decisions
  • A cycle to work scheme for our staff
  • The Catering team source products locally where possible

We are always looking for ideas to reduce the impact of Nottingham Racecourse on the local and wider environment.  If you have any suggestions, we would be delighted to hear from you at
