Sustainability Framework

In 2017 the Lake District was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site; this designation specifically covers the 13 valleys that make up the Lake District National Park. We're donating 5% of every entry fee to the Lake District Foundation , the charity working to protect this magnificent part of the planet.

The Lake District Foundation supports the sustainable future of Cumbria and the National Park through low carbon initiatives, fixing the fells, planting hedgerows and much more.

You can also sign up to Kilian Jornet’s ”Outdoor Friendly Pledge”, or get involved with “The Green Runners”, a running community making changes for a fitter planet.
